Bee's, spiders and other insects often vacation inside of grills
Of course most of the people on this site dont have that problem because we grill all year round :ph34r:

a couple years ago, i wasn't bbqing much and we went on vacation for a week or 2 and my parents came over to cut the grass etc. they took off the bbq cover to clean it up for me and lone behold, when my mom lifted off the vinyl cover, a swarm of bees/wasps came out, stung her all over her arms, flew up her shirt and stung her. they had built a little nest under there, not sure how big it was, but they had to go buy some bee killer and get rid of it.

needless to say, she wasn't impressed.

my bbq cover got cleaned though.

the honey, and maybe even the grill, were probably ruined by that chemical bomb

i could understand opening the cover and finding some bugs, but that was RIDICULOUS....could have killed the guy, seriously

Most everyone has the mistaken. These are not BEES but WASPS. NO honey here just multiple stings from a single insect. They are very aggressive. Primarily know as yellow jackets as I said they are mistaken for bees but are not. They are very aggressive wasps

I agree, I feel those are bees. Yellow jackets look similar to a honey bee, except they have a very skinny waist, unlike the honey bee. Yellow jackets are in the wasp family. They build nests similar to a football, or conical shape - though they mostly live underground. Will also build a nest under siding, in rafters, etc. More like paper.

Whichever - glad I didn't find that under my cover! Oops. My cover is used now for my generator! :ph34r: The grill never gets covered as it's in use year round... :blink:

My guess is that they are the hybrid africanized honeybees. These have a reputation for being extremely agressive where the normal American honey bee is fairly placid. Even the latter might attack given the circumstances, but this sounds like the swarming attack of the Africanized bees.

So yeah, why have a grill if you're going to let it sit long enough for a hive that big to be built? :ph34r: Rich
