I then had no option but to hire the Heating & Air Conditioning supplier to repair, scrub & seal the duct system.
Last Spring, I decided to thoroughly scrub our lake house from top to bottom. I laundered all of the linens, organized the closets, washed the windows & cleaned everything from the overhead light fixtures to behind furniture, however multiple times, I found a bee flying around the room. I carefully captured the bee & released it outside. I could not figure out where they were coming from. It wasn’t until I started up the a/c for the first time that I realized the bees had built their nest inside the air duct, however when the rush of cool air hit the bees, they poured from the supply vents into the house. There were a lot of them, & they were extremely annoyed. The people I was with and I needed to vacate the house. I immediately called our Heating & Air Conditioning supplier & explained the problem, but he told me that bees are a protected species & that I’d need to contact a professional bee removal supplier. While the bee supplier was genuinely unbelievable about arriving quickly & handling the problem, this resulted in some damage to our walls, ceilings & air duct. I then had no option but to hire the Heating & Air Conditioning supplier to repair, scrub & seal the duct system. The bees had left behind a unbelievable deal of debris inside the pipes that would potentially block airflow & cause issues with indoor air conditions, however all of these several services added up to a unbelievable deal of time, stress & expense. The people I was with and I were unable to run the a/c until the bee issues were taken care of. The lake house was extremely hot the whole time.
