Here's the predicament. The guy who owns this barbecue sees bees flying in and out of the cover. He hasn't used it for a few months, but he needs it this weekend. So, he hatches a plan for getting rid of the bees without getting stung.

What would you do in this situation? Hopefully, you would first determine whether you were dealing with bees or wasps. Though both bees and wasps belong to the order Hymenoptera, there are differences.
