That was a very nice hive and I hated to kill it. Hi my name is Jeff Mc and I am the hired killer that destroyed this hive. Neither me or the homeowner wanted too, but the neighbors were scared that killer bees were going to hurt them. Pinellas county outlaws any hive and you are ticketed if you do not get rid of them. The state reccomends the kill of all bees, even non aggresive hives like this one. The homeowner loved this hive that was hanging over the million dollar home. The 3 years it was there, not even the dog, (who liked chasing bees) was ever stung or threatened. Pinellas county is full of flowers and fruit, and has recently received calls from homeowners asking why they have no fruit this year on their tree. No one is at threat here with ferals other than our land, but its a safer place for us with no bees? Whats your opinion?
