To do or not to do

The past three weeks has seen nearly 10-15 bees visiting my room everyday. I have followed the policy of loving them. My strong belief is that when you love animals they don't harm you. And upto date, they have never stung me except when I tried to save a bee drowning in the bucket of water with my hand. No, it was no fault of the bee. I have to blame my own stupidity for that.

Today morning I woke up with an insect biting my eyes. I couldn't see what the insect was, but it was painful, and definitely not an ant. Half an hour later, I had hundreds of bees visiting my room. I had to abandon my policy and run, for I can't love hundreds of them the same way at the same time, and jealousy is dangerous. :) An hour later, I helped those still buzzing on my table, bed and floor out of the window.

Went around the building to find a beehive right below my window. Then came the need to make a decision. What should I do ? I can't risk having hundreds of them sting me. But that decision would entail removing their home. Though small, these hardworking insects build amazing homes.

To do or not to do!!!

Well, I guess either them or you will have to find a new home... It's your choice ;)

Options are only two, and the option of me moving out is non existent. So, the bees have no choice. Me being man, and man being man, rest of animal kind has no go but make way. The dilemma is not only of making someone else move, but also the one of breaking someone else's home.

they build a new home pretty quickly if they loose one though... just part of life...

Well, an update. One small bee stung me on my eyes yesterday, early morning. As of today, it is so swollen, I can't open my eyes. So, decided to not look at things from the other side as of now;the side of the bees. :)

I remember the phrase 'Survival of the fittest' but don't know whether it fits here.
