Wednesday, June 23, 2010 San Manuel Miner, San Manuel, Arizona I Se a Lions win against Coolidge and Eloy The San Manuel Sea Lions hosted a swim meet against the Coolidge Dolphins and the Eloy Otters. Ooing into the meet on Saturday, Coolidge and San Manuel were the only two undefeated team in the Central Arizona Swimming League. The team score lead switchedback and forth several times' before a Chlorine odor was smelled briefly by the several of the spectators. The meet was suspended until the San Manuel Fire Department determined that the odor had been caused by maintenance activities and there was no danger to any of the participants or spectators. Upon resumption of the meet, the Coolidge team was informed by the City of Coolidge that they could not participate in the rest of the swim meet. The determination of who is the best team in the league will have to be settled later - at a duel meet in Coolidge in a few weeks and at the League Championship meet in San Manuel on July 17.

(Frank Smith photo) Letter to the Editor: it's the time of year for bee infestations Editor, San Manuel Miner: As a contractor, I have noticed the increase of homeowners needing help with the havoc that bee infestations can cause. When I do get a call for help, 1 go out and look, and if I see any bees swarming around a hole in the house, under the eaves, I tell the homeowner to call a bee service first, to get rid of them. There is nothing that any contractor or homeowner can do, until the bees are dealt with. It's too bad one has to kill that many bees, but a bee keeper can't harvest them if they are in a closed-in space in the attic or crawl space. I had a bee problem in my own house last month, and we called 911 to find out who could help us. They called the fire department, who recommended a bee keeper, in Mammoth. He said he couldn't help us by harvesting them if.the bees were in an enclosed area that he couldn't get into easily. It would be too complicated, with bee traps, bait, and a couple of weeks of coming out daily to check things out. So, instead of hiring a bee extermination service, which would cost around $300 to $400, I decided I felt qualified enough, (the key word here is 'qualified'), to wait until after 9 p.m., when the bees were all quiet, and go up there and shoot a couple of house bug bombs inside the bird holes where they were congregated. I started spraying the bomb in one of the bird board holes, plugging up all other holes they had accessed so as to prevent escape, and I heard a commotion that sounded like a motor! The "motor sound" stopped completely ... they were all dead. Then, I plugged the holes up with kitchen sponges so that no outside bees could gain access, and left the area for a couple of days so everything could settle down. Some days later, I removed the 2x8 board with the four bird board holes the bees used for access, and found around 1,500 bees. I then vacuumed them up. The hive, or comb, was only miniscule, so I didn't have any major renovations...ceiling drywall was ok. I replaced a small amount of insulation (still leaving enough room for ventilation). I then fixed the holes in the bird board with new screen, replaced the board, and sealed it good with caulk. It would have been too late for self effort (on my part) if I had waited through two spring seasons to address the problem. Another house ] worked on, had around 20,000 bees taken out, and the hive was tremendous, dripping honey, which threatened to go through the bedroom ceiling. The bees were not dealt with for at least a couple of years. That homeowner needed to file an insurance claim (it was still profitable, even after a high deductable). Any longer of a wait, and the roof would have had to be lifted in that spot, and some of the siding of the house also (unless it was brick). As it was, ! had to break' through into the bedroom ceiling, clean out the mess, replace the ceiling insulation and drywall, and paint. The moral of this story, is See Bees, Page 10 Herman M.
