Same thing occurred in Vineland NJ. Only its now being broadcast over net, incluiding the exterminator who sprayed them. Feel your pain....I would send hospital letter explaining what you do. Also find out who exterminator is and offer your services. If he killed one, he probably killed others.
I'm not going to drag this thing out, or get a bunch of people involved, I will move past it. Now, Terminix is the company that referred me to it in the first place, not that they have the contract with the insane, they got a call from people from across the street about the hive and they referred me. The terminix manager and I are friends, in fact I give him honey.
You all probably know I am a pest guy, just one that likes honeybees and tries to save them from being sprayed because it is not necessary, practical, and of course not the right thing to do with an insect so wonderful and important.
Not every insect is a pest, people just don't get this sometimes, in fact more than most realize.
And no, geckos are not pests, tree frogs are not pests, and if I see anyone spraying a praying mantis, they gonna get a fistfull! ;)
I'm still fuming over the spraying of that colony and this is the main reason I won't be contacting the insane asylum any time soon. Heck, they don't return calls any way.
