This morning, I found a small beehive in the balcony.
今朝、ベランダで小さなハチの巣を見つけました。

I was thinking what I should do for the matter, and I searched about how to get rid of a beehive on the internet.
どうするべきかを考え、インターネットでハチの巣の取り除き方を検索しました。

According to a blog, the beehive was not very big, and the bees were not wasps either, so I told my husband that we could use an insecticide spray to kill them.
あるブログに寄ると、巣はそんなに大きくないし、ハチの種類がスズメバチではないので、殺虫剤で退治できるだろうと夫に伝えました。

As soon as he listened to my explanation, he splayed insecticide toward the hive.
彼は、私の説明を聞くなり、家にあった殺虫剤を巣に向けて噴射しました。

Three bees out of four died there, and the other one flew away.
4匹いたハチの3匹はその場で死に、1匹は飛んで逃げて行きました。

Later, I told my American friend about this when we were talking via Skype.
その後、お友達にスカイプでそのことを話しました。

During the conversation, I suddenly remembered that there were a lot of snails in my front yards when I lived in California.
会話の間に、私がカリフォルニアに住んでいた時、うちの前庭に多くのカタツムリがいたことを急に思い出しました。

At that time, I also noticed that the snails were damaging some flowers in my garden.
あの時、そのカタツムリが庭に害を与えているのにも気づきました。

So, I went to a Home Depot, bought a box of snail bait and sprinkled them.
ホームデポへ行き、カタツムリ駆除剤を買って、庭に撒きました。

As a result, the following morning, there were a lot of shells of snails in my yards.
すると、翌朝、カタツムリの殻が庭に大量にありました。

Too many shells, which I had never seen before, made me feel guilty.
今までに見たことのない大量のカタツムリの残骸に、罪悪感を感じました。


Both snails and slugs cause troubles in a garden, but snails look a little cuter than slugs, do you agree with me?
カタツムリもナメクジも庭に問題を引き起こしますが、カタツムリの方がちょっと可愛い、あなたもそう思いますか?
