A little advice, if you please. I appreciate all that you guys have given me thus far. Thanks!
I got a call today from another lady that has bees in a front porch pillar. I stopped and gave her an estimate on removal. I could hear quite a bit of activity inside, but did not see many bees coming or going.
During our second conversation, she informed me that her husband, unbeknownst to her, had been spraying the bees. She did not know when she called me. The bees are still alive, but in what condition, I don't know. At this point I don't know what he sprayed them with. Something from the hardware store, she thought.
Should I let them deal with the situation on their own, or help them with the removal as planned (nothing is free, of course)? Obviously, the bees have little to no value at this point, but maybe they are somewhat salvagable.
Also, the honey, such as it might be, will be no good.
I just wondered what you guys/girls thought. Nice people, and they (she) was concerned about the bees. Opinions? Thoughts?
