There has been reports that a small colony of Killer bees have invaded the area, and is led by a large Queen Killer bee. She is now hidden away in a small patch of woods, and has sent out her male drones to scout out the area. These drones need to be found and followed back to the hive and the queen. Once the hive has first (FTF)been found it is up the finder to remove her mate, a rather large drone which is the only one that the queen can mate with. Without him the hive will die off. The queen is to remain in the hive till the other drones return and they will be killed by the queen for their lack of being able to mate. The Queen will remain alone till she dies and the danger of a new hive has passed.
The first leg of this cache is very near that area where the original hive forage on Sunday morning, and then leave to prey upon local caches. Once finding the first leg it would be more fun for the group to split into individuals or couples, which also would make it more challenging.

After spending a good part of the day with Killerb I figured I would give this one a try. I found quite a few bees but not quite enough to be able to log a find. I called for a little guidance and got just that. Actually, the Bee did give me a decent clue but I still wasn't able to come with the find. With daylight on it's way out I figured I would continue this one another day.

Due to lack of activity, I have decided that I will archive this cache as of 9-13-09. Thanks, to those of you who took the time to be entertained by this casche. Your comments and postings said enough for me to know that you enjoyed it.
For those that did not have a chance to attempt it, you still have eight days. KillerB

Too bad this is only listed on navicache, but it was still a great cache. Found it today with MS6 in a surprisingly short amount of time. Only got stung once, and that was so I could find a cache listed on GC.com. Great cache, very well thought out. It was nice to see KB himself at one of the legs as well as The Malone Family. Great final container, took the un-activated coin. Thanks for bringing me to Osage!

Yeah--we get to turn our thumb up!! After a wonderful caching breakfast we were getting ready to head off to tackle this cache again today but then we got distracted by a possible try for an FTF on a Paleoman cache so off we went for that cache. After making that find, we headed off to the location that we left off on yesterday for this cache. As we were approaching the site, Mystersolvers were heading out with BIG smiles on their faces! KillerB was also on site and came with us to watch us resume our search from yesterday. This time we knew the location we wanted to tackle. KillerB snapped some pics as we searched and searched--for his "caching torture scrapbook" according to CM! Actually KillerB was helpful keeping us on track and SM made the find and off we went. As Lucky46 mentioned in his logs the rest is pretty much a blur! Two times we almost made a call to KillerB for a "keep going, you can do it pep talk." Then we put our team into teams to make the search more exciting--SM & DCM vs LM & CM---final score 5 to 5! Why was this taking us so LONG?? How many slugs and spiders are we going to have to touch, how many snakes and frogs, etc. are we going to need to see, how many bug bites do we have to endure. Sometime we will have to fill you in KillerB about a couple of things we did while trying to complete this cache--at one point I believe we even made up our own coordinates to follow--no, we are NOT kidding!! If there is a prize for "dirtiest cachers on the Danger cache" the award goes to...malonefamily. Odd thing is, now that we think back, we really didn't need to get that dirty. We just couldn't buzz to location for some reason. Finally we found some bees that helped guide us, but isn't it more fun to try every single pathway just to make it interesting? We don't think that there is a bee left in the Mt. Morris area that we haven't found! The cache container was fantastic. We forgot our camera today so we will BEE back to snap a picture! Once again, the pure feeling of satifaction upon completion of this cache far outweighs the moments of utter hopelessness we felt along the way!! EVERYONE should try this cache. We won't mention in this log that it is 4:30 p.m. and the malonefamily is already in their pajamas because we are totally spent after 2 days of searching for "danger." It's been an intense day of caching! Curse you KillerB, we mean TFTC:)!!

Well we were stung today as well as bit by mosiquitos. I guess mosiquitos don't sleep in the rain like we had hoped. We did manage to stay basically dry despite the pouring rain and had a great time with Exitmundi. Thanks KillerB for coming to one of the legs of this cache to watch us search endlessly. Here's the part where we brag how Scott pick the correct leg to start with and it truely only took us 1 1/2 hours to complete this cache. We did find an additional blind bee when we took Exitmundi to one of KillerB's other caches (Where the Valley Widens). I think the swag in final should have included bee sting ointment instead of poisin ivy ointment, although was definately needed both with all the poison ivy and bees we saw out there. Thanks for the beehive chase. Love the final cache.

Malonefamily has been stung by Killerb for now! But we are by no means giving up! We set off this afternoon on a happy little bee hunt. At leg 1, CM, LM, & SM headed back to the Jeep to change into "we mean business" caching attire--jeans AND bug guard! After making a quick find at leg 1 we set off with way too much confidence! We set off eyes OPEN for bees and bees we found--here a bee, there a bee! We found them but those blind little buggers couldn't see us. Believing that we were very close to spotting a bee that COULD spot us we searched, and searched, and searched but night was setting in and our stamina was running low. We decided to call it a night. We headed out of our search area feeling a bit STUNG! We decided it's just a DNFY (did not find yet) for us because we will BEE back on the trail ASAP. KillerB's cache creativity continues to leave us AMAZED!! Thanks for a fun "to be continued adventure".

Quick and easy cache and dash. TFTC, TFTH, TNLN, SL.



Okay, maybe a little embelishment. It wasn't that quick. I guess it wasn't that easy either. I won't be able to dash anywhere for a few days. I've been hearing a lot of buzzzzz going around town about this new KillerB cache, so after grabbing a FTF in Warsaw this morning (Priorities) I decided I was pain and embarrasment free enough from a much exagerated sewing accident to go out and do a nice easy one, like the DESCRIPTION SAYS! Off I went to find the first stop. That wasn't too bad and I got the info I needed, or so I thought. The rest was honestly pretty much a blur, so don't even ask me how I did it solo. It's really none of your Beeeees Wax. I certainly lived up to my caching name today. What an adventure it was and as logged before, in some beautiful settings. It was a perfect day for this cache, and also as mentioned before, the finale was well worth the torture, er, search. All I know for sure is the thoughts of needles are very vague in the grand scheme of things now. Thanks for reminding us how adventures really work KillerB and this is a great way to start out your caching season. We look forward to more. Ow!
P.S. Thanks KillerB, for the chat and the STF (sixth to find) prize right in your own hive. A pleasure.

This was such a perfect summer evening that I just didn't want to sit home and waste it, so I mentioned to Mrs. P-Man that we could try and find that tough bee that had everyone stumped so far. It sounded like a good idea to her and off we went. When we arrived at the first location I wanted to check, Howie buzzed by on his motorcycle and spun around and told us that he had not planned on doing this tonight but now he couldn't resist the temptation. So I found another bee that was blind and then I saw that there was another close by so we all went for that one, which proved to be the toughest one yet. We all looked and looked and after a lengthy search by all of us I spotted something and Howie and I made the grab, WooHoo!, this was the hard one that had stumped everyone so far, so we got the info we needed and headed out to the rest of the adventure. As Howie and Jan said before me I won't reveal any more info here because that would spoil all the fun for the next searchers. It was a true team effort for Howie and Jan, Zoggy, Mrs. P-Man and I, which each one of the team had a hand in getting from one place to another. This cache is worth every frustrating minute it may take you to do it, because the reward at the end is really worth it all. The icing on the cake was to stop at Killerb's house and share our adventures with him. This cache is a true masterpiece of ingenious planning, hiding, and taking you to interesting and beautiful places. Thanks killerb for putting this cache out and for giving us all such a fun caching adventure, -Paleoman-

Well, we weren't going to head back out for this again for a few days, but when Howie drove by the location where we have been stumped twice (3 times really, we went there twice in one night), he saw Paleoman52's van. So of course he had to go! It took the team effort of Howie, P-man and his lovely wife to finally find that elusive bee! Much thanks to the FTF (you know who you are!)for the re-hide! With this find made, Howie called Jan, who grabbed Zoggy20 and we were off again. We don't want to say anymore about our adventures, we don't want to give anything away. We will say however, that this cache was a ton of fun and worth every bit of the effort we put in. Doing it as a small group made it even better. We hope all the hive plans on doing this soon! After we were done, we had to stop and see The Head Bee himself and mess with him a little, then the final reward, home for a dip in the pool. Thanks Killerb, glad to have you back out there!

This rogue Queen KillerB is getting concerned as to why none of her drones have returned to their hive with her nurishment. But her major drone is keeping her happy for the time being. The hive had better get together to find these elusive drones. BFG and the team of Howie & Jan have a head start, but with the right choice of Bees to follow, you could be caught up real fast.

Thanks Killerb for the early morning stroll through the wet grass. I don't consider the hour's fruitless search wasted however, it was a beautiful warm sunny morning to be communing with nature while pawing around in the woods![:)]

I got started on this fun challenge this evening and after locating the first stage I decided to try finding the nearest bee, it just so happened that Howie and Jan were also there searching. After a spell I decided to contact the head bee and tell him that the bee had flown away. I searched a little more and made the huckle after expanding my search area, soon after this Howie and then Jan spotted the elusive little bee. Now it was back to our vehicles and as we arrived there the head bee himself pulled in after spending the day painting his porch. We all had a nice chat and I shared my theories as to the identities of some secret people involved with our game. Howie and Jan headed out to find more bees and KB and I chatted a little more before I left for home with plans to return with Mrs. P-Man and seek out the remaining bees. Thanks KB for the fun challenge, it has been a while since I have had the pleasure of doing one of your new caches and the wait has been definitely been worth it. -Paleoman-

BEES! all we saw were bees, everywhere we looked. Too bad none of them could see us! Except the head bee, who we spoke to a couple of times, in person even! Oh- and we spoke about him even more. Our final search for that elusive little critter we needed to find had to be called on account of darkness. Can we make it back before BFG and P-Man? We'll see!

OK all you bees in this killerB hive. Are you going to let this Queen Bee take over the area with her hive or are you going to find her hive and remove her major drone from the hive and leave her there alone to die?
BFG started on it late yesterday, but lost some time due to a mistake that I made, but that was rectified and he continued on, till rain and darkness stopped him. KillerB

This is a fun cache that could involve some time. I was very proud to bee the first to find on this new cache. This cache at times will make you want to quit but it will also make you a better cacher.
KillerB is a master at placing caches and this one is my favorite. It covers an interesting area of ground in the MT.Morris area.
The final cache is in an outstanding place that makes all your effort you need to find the final,worth it.
Don't think you can't do it because if i can,you can.
Go play with this cache,you won't believe what an adventure is waiting for you.
I got f.t.f. alone,so you do not need a group.
