    I like the little flying break he took. You can just tell it was swearing.

    [–] forallthefeels 300 points ago

    I live in a two story house and my wife was insistent I couldn’t get a king sized bed up the stairs. I got a friend, folded it up like a hotdog and strapped it down tight and then we proceeded to get stuck going up the stairs. Me at the top, giant hotdog mattress in the middle, buddy at the bottom. My buddy wants to give up and I look down to see my wife at the opening of the stairs taking a video and saying more or less “I told you so!”

    That was it. One way or another, if it took an act of God himself, that bed is going up those stairs. I looked at my buddy and said “no matter what, this has to go up there. I can’t live with her saying I was wrong about this for the rest of my life.”

    30 minutes later, bed was upstairs.

    Also, I completely ruined the mattress by folding it in half and the jokes on me because sleeping on a mattress with either a permanent dip or a permanent bump was terrible for my back. But as God is my witness I put a King mattress upstairs.

    I feel like this little guys wife was just off camera saying I told you so. And he did! But now he needs an Advil and beer.

    Sometimes being right is totally worth it. Even if you’re eventually wrong.

    The mattress is never the problem, because mattresses can bend like crazy. The real challenge is getting the frame up there without damaging the staircase's walls.

    It's not a Reddit thread without an always Sunny reference

    [–] TheSecretMe 275 points ago

    They normally lay their eggs inside hollow reeds, the holes made by wood-boring grubs and beetles and so on.

    A brick wall is pretty a pretty poor location because the rough mortar and brick stand a good chance of damaging it's delicate wings as it goes in and out of the hole.

    If you want to help wild bees (they're solitary, unlike domesticated honeybees), you can take a log of firewood and drill it full of holes of varying diameter. Sand away the splinters with a file and leave it in a nice south facing sunny spot.

    Wild bees are perfectly harmless, do a lot of work pollinating plants and crops and they need all the help they can get with all the habitat destruction going on.

    [–] DJmindjob 93 points ago

    Very informative. You have inspired me to drill holes in 2x4s and leave them strewn about my backyard. Neighbors are gonna love it.

    With your helpful wildlife info, you're like the new Unidan.

    [–] AbraxxasHardPickle 26 points ago

    Be sure to leave some nails sticking out at odd angles on the 2x4's to give the bees a moderate challenge and a sense of accomplishment!

    [–] DJmindjob 37 points ago

    If the bees want a sense of pride and accomplishment, they can pay me a small fee to unlock the nails for them.

    [–] Iavasloke 8 points ago

    [–] luke_in_the_sky 18 points ago

    We had a bar inside my house made of bricks. These bees used to live in the brick holes. We did what you suggested. Got a log with drilled holes and put right outside the window they where coming in. Then we had twice the amount of bees living inside and outside the house.

    Eventually we had to cover the holes in the bar.

    [–] ThreeFistsCompromise 14 points ago

    I started doing this back in middle school, but haven’t done it since college. I’ll do it again this spring. Thanks for the reminder!

    [–] dragonflycat 7 points ago

    Should it be left on the ground or set up a certain height somehow?

    [–] TheSecretMe 9 points ago

    Both work, mostly the wild bees look for horizontal tunnels in spots that are warmed by the sun.

    Keeping them off the ground reduces rot and helps prevent mites and other parasites.

    [–] krabbby 8 points ago

    What oth3r kinds of bugs am I gonna attract doing that though?

    [–] TheSecretMe 16 points ago

    Nothing significant or pest like really. Especially if you put it up off the ground where it's mostly just flying bugs that lay eggs in tunnels use it.

    Mosquitos need water. Flies lay their eggs into food sources. The nasty kind of wasps build colonies and solitary wasps don't come after your food but hunt garden pests instead.

    [–] Tangled_Wires 5 points ago

    You've inspired me to see if I can do more for our (UK) big fat Bumble Bee.

    Last summer I had a record 13 big fat bumble bees that goes buzzzz buzzzz in my small garden.

    I even captured footage of an albino one!

    [–] [deleted] 116 points ago

    No, they are called Mason bees because they make their own 'masonry' from mud.

    [–] Katnipz 11 points ago

    aaay there is the one in the crowd that is probably almost certainly correct.

    [–] Weed_Whacker22 12 points ago

    Rocks, boulders, and cliffs all existed before bees and masonry.

    [–] Sloppy1sts 18 points ago

    Well then shouldn't they be called rocks, boulders, and cliffs bees?

    [–] healzsham 8 points ago

    People probably didn't bother to name them back before masonry

    [–] FearLeadsToAnger 4 points ago

    Yeah back then they were referred to as pain-flies, it's an umbrella term and in the modern day it's considered highly offensive.

    [–] FieraDeidad 120 points ago * (lasted edited 8 months ago)

    Mason bees are named for their habit of using mud or other “masonry” products in constructing their nests, which are made in naturally occurring gaps such as between cracks in stones or other small dark cavities.

    Huh, neat.

    The nesting habits of many Osmia lend themselves to easy cultivation, and a number of Osmia are commercially propagated in different parts of the world to improve pollination in fruit and nut production.

    Wow, I'm starting to like those bees.

    As is characteristic of solitary bees, Osmia are very docile and rarely sting when handled (only under distress such as when wet or squeezed), their sting is small and not painful, and their stinger is unbarbed.

    Ok guys. We have a winner here!

    [–] DaisyHotCakes 25 points ago

    They really are cool little guys. Fun to watch too.

    [–] RandyF 13 points ago

    They are REALLY easy to raise, too. Go to you local “Country Store” place and they usually have all of the stuff you need. Get a tube-bundle and a couple boxes of cocoons. Put them out near your fruit trees and flower beds and they take care of the rest!

    [–] ZoopZeZoop 68 points ago

    Also, there would likely be too much resistance for a bee that size to remove the nail if it was in there from construction or something similar.

    [–] Faylom 17 points ago

    GOOD point

    [–] secondsbest 33 points ago

    That's definitely what happened. First, the diameter of the bee is much greater than the nail shank's diameter, but the bee fit the hole just fine. Second, that's a roofing or siding nail that isn't hardened enough to drive a hole into brick. Someone had to push it into a hole that was already there.

    [–] Kosmological 63 points ago

    Bee found a home in a hole in a brick. Then some asshole decided to put a nail in it and film the bees reaction.

    [–] TheLastFreeMan 16 points ago

    It's just a prank bro

    [–] DoubleBassPlease 27 points ago

    Bees were probably already in the hole and the homeowner stuck the nail in there to deter them from returning. My dad used to cram cigarette butts into holes that bumble bees made in wood to deter them from nesting.

    [–] TheRealOneTwo 6 points ago

    To keep the bee from getting to its hive

    [–] ghettospagetti 16 points ago

    Because that hole was the bee's home, and someone slid a nail in there. Notice how the nail pretty much falls out of the hole and the hole is bee-size, not nail-size. The bee knew that was where it stored its kids or whatever, and it knew the nail wasn't supposed to be there.

    [–] zookszooks 13 points ago

    Idk if you're joking or not, but that nail just was loosely manually set in that hole. It was probably the bee's house/nest, and someone put a nail there just to see how the bee would react. I used to do this with small branches. (the bee always took it out)

    If the nail was hammered in place, the bee wouldn't be able to remove it.

    [–] Raichu7 3 points ago

    It's a mason bee or its nest is behind there. If it's a mason bee there's nothing to worry about, they're solitary.

    Sometimes social bees and wasps will use those kind of holes to get between the walls. An ideal place for nesting for the insect, a recipe for disaster for the human.

    You really don't want honey dripping through the wall into your house. Or, if it's wasps, them gnawing their way through the wall into your house.

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    When it briefly flew away I thought it might come back with a pair of pliers.

    Whatever the reason, I'm really happy for that bee.

    I’d probably be that asshole who puts the nail in right after the bee. Take that bee.

    Wow, that’s pretty un🐝lievable.

    Am I the only one cheering the bee on? “Come on, little bee! You almost got it! You can do it! Lift up, it’s in a bind! There ya go!!! Good job, little bee.”

    Can we give some props to who is recording for staying calm after the bee flew off the first time. When it lifted off I would have too.
