Rebel Rose, my apologies if I came across harsh. My intention was not to "rub it in", but to stress to everyone out there that these types of people you have described should be avoided like the plague.
JP, no problem, I understand why you said that!
Out of the past few calls I had for swarms and cut outs. One swarm was a piece of steak (they fed me steak and it was easy to get the bees), another one was 'jellow jackets' and not honey bees, another was for 'bumble bees', the next one had lots of honey bees inside of the insulation of his large metal building....and let the electricians spray them with several cans of hornet spray before I got there.....the next, called me about a colony in the cemetery and later said that a private person had hired another beekeeper to remove them before I got there....now I have this call.... :shock:
Of course this is Illinois....where we have one governor in prison and another about to go there as well....nothing will surprise me after this! I hope.... :?
