Removed this very large colony today from a ceiling. This thing was packed. Sorry about the photos being a bit blurry. My camera need replacing or I need replacing or both. I about filled up my large vaccum box with this one. Really large. Not hot at all though.

I like doing cut-outs, but I love catching swarms!

Now I see why you didn't answer your phone all day!!  Hey, the one I did yesterday was extremely, extremely docile, I'm glad I finally got the queen, fantastic genetics. Isn't it nice when you're not smelling bananas all day?
Way to go Dude!

Amazing!  What do the homeowners say when they see what you uncover?!

Typical homeowner statements.
1. It's only been there for a little while. (actually it has been there for at least a year and you just now are noticing it).
2. I am allergic and need them removed now(they have been there a year, did you develop this allergy yesterday?)
3. This should be an easy job for you(It's a fun job not always an easy one. Your problem is the fact that when I am done your house is going to look like swiss cheese).
All followed by the same statement made by Scott's homeowner.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

This is one I get constantly, you just smoke them out right? (yup here, you do it, go head and smoke them out!!!)

Are those killer bees? (yes they are, here, stand a little closer, let's experiment!)

They're in the wall, I know they are, can't be anywhere else. (And how many bee removals have you done? That's right sit down/shut up and Scott will show you how its done, baby!!! Kiss)

You collect them right?
You can have them if you want them, no problem. Lips Sealed

What do you mean you have to cut my wall open from top to bottom? Are you crazy!! (why, yes, do you have a sister?)

I'll just spray 'em then! (Goodbye, btw, if you call me back, the price will be at least double!!! Beotch!!!) grin
