Yesterday I turned my name into the Extension office as someone willing to get swarms. Got the call today. Except it's not a swarm.
A gentleman owns a weekend cabin here and there are bees going into a crack in the mortar of his chimney. Sounds like it's above the roof line. I told him this wasn't a simple removal, that a someone with good construction (and deconstruction) skills would be required plus someone to get the bees out. Went over the issues of just killing the bees and leaving the honey behind (not being a good idea). Also told him that without knowing exactly where the bees are there is no good way to go about this without pulling rocks and then boards.
Anyway, how should I proceed? I'm not real interested in getting into this but would like to give the guy solid advice.
