Impossibly Huge Bees

cab1123September 13, 2009

I'm begging for someone's help! Sorry I don't have a picture as of yet, but I will try to post one as soon as possible. My girlfriend and I were in her basement when we heard a sound like a motobike coming from one of the rooms. We entered said room and were horrified to find at least a hundred dead bees of unknown species, all the same mind you. I have never in all my years ever encountered a bee of this proportion. It measures at LEAST 1" in length It has the body and colloration of a yellow jacket, but it is not smooth it is fuzzy. It reminds me of a cross between a yellow jacket and a bumble bee. Can anyone please shed some light on our situation? Thank you in advance.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
