I guess anybody that has a bee suit knows just what to do. :shock: :shock:

That was pretty sad to watch, could have make 2 or 3 good hives from all of those bees and comb.

Even more sad is how they destroyed her house, I sure hope they made enough money from it to buy some battery powered tools, it looked as though they only had a hammer.

Isn't that a handy tip though that bees can't function if you just turn your AC down to 70 degrees?

I kinda wonder what that guy did with those trash bags full of comb.  I bet they may have gone straight to the dumpster with the way he was pulling everything down.

This actually almost made me cry.  Seriously, did no bee removal services come up when they googled?? What's up with people?  I hate to be mean, but I want to bleep-slap that man for what he did. 

Gah!

love,

He got paid big money to remove those bees.   Homeowner wanted them gone.  Period. He did not care about the bees, or her house.  He wanted his money fast.  And he got on TV also.

I had my kids watch the news report and they said "are all exterminators idiots when it comes to honey bees?"  Even a 9 yo knows what to do to protect the bees and its 52 deg. outside and Im wondering why my bees are functional?

I've chosen understanding over knowledge-since knowledge is all about knowing where to find facts and understanding is knowing how to manipulate knowledge...I've also chosen knowledge over beliefs!! We all need to..

That could have been handled far better then that. :-x......Someone really needs to school these people and give them a real educatoin in bees. That guy with the hammer must have just got of a bad surf board ride the day before. Lets just beat on the side of the house and piss them off more..that will show them. :-x....So reason to instill fear into more of the public with false information.

I looked up their web site and this must be a franchise type pest control outfit since they are all over the USA.

http://www.gotchapestcontrol.com/

The one in Houston, which is shown above, has a couple of videos on their website. I think he only has a hammer, saws all and broom for bee removals. Their site claims they relocate bees and are trying to save them.

http://abclocal.go.com/ktrk/story?section=news/local&id=6773498

Watch this video clip, listen at the very end at how they "SAVE THE BEES"................what an idiot!!

After watching his videos in the gallery of his website, he can even recognize AHB on site, what a joke he is!! This fella needs a good education on honeybees and how to handle them.

Very sad at all of the misinformation he is spewing out.
