I have one wall that the Bees seem to love. They have drilled a large number of holes. So far the damage does not seem structural but I'm keeping a close eye on it. Odd but it almost seems seasonal in nature. I seems the winter some where else and it in latter spring before they wonder back to the same holes as last year.

Last year, when we applied earthen plaster, they were there and we sorta entombed some, and I guess they're getting revenge--in the very same place--talk about cosmic memory! Surprised that the caustic quality of the lime plaster does not deter them at all. I replastered it, but they dig in again. Perhaps the major damage is only to my sculptures (my Mayan Jaguar Mask now looks like a smiley face without teeth, since I tried to patch her up!), but who knows how extensive the damage may eventually be. Any ideas? (I won't use pesticide.) Al
