How Do You Catch a Bee in Your House?

Have you ever had a bumble bee in your house?

My son had been hearing loud buzzing noises coming from around the window and later in the day we discovered the source, we had a large bumble bee hanging out in our living room. What do we do now?

I sprang into action, finding a Wendy’s drinking cup and ads from the newspaper. I cautiously approached the bee on the corner of the furniture and quickly put the cup over the insect. Then I slid some of the ads between the cup and the couch and carefully moved toward the door.

The angry bee was buzzing so loudly I thought the vibrations were going to make me lose my grip on the plastic cup, but I was able to get it onto the front porch.

We left it outdoors, thinking the wind would knock over the cup and release the bee. The next morning the cup was still standing and underneath the bee was dead.

That was one way of getting a bee out of the house, how would you remove an unwanted insect from your place?
