Last night I got fed up. The dryer hasn't been drying very well. I got the vacuum out and pulled the dryer away from the wall. I vauumed inside the lint trap and then undid the hose from the wall. Without looking I just stuck the vacuum attachment into the wall and noticed something was blocking it. I figured hardened lint. Then, a bee fell out. Oh, no... what if that is a bee's nest? I jumped up and OVER the dryer. My heart raced and all I could say was Oh. MY. God. I was a mess.
I couldn't see too well, so I took a picture with the flash on. That's when I realized. It was a bird. ... heart racing... freaking out... Then I grabbed the kitchen tongs and tried to be brave enough to pull him out of the vent. I DID after about 10 minutes of panic haha. Poor thing. Another 4 or 5 big ol' bumble bees fell out with him. I wrapped him in a bunch of paper towels and put him in the outside trash can.
Using my analytical tallents I figure that he pissed off the bees. He flew up the outside opening of the vent. Then fell DOWN to the dryer and got stuck there and with all of the bees. He was dead when I turned on the dryer Saturday and I basically cooked his decomposing body (hence the smell). Now that is not a fun way to die. My coworker said "It's like an animal kingdom murder case."
