I charge $300 minimum here in Austin, TX. Plus extra expenses if I incur them. Ya, I lose 3 out of 4 callers because that is too much, but I don't need the removal fee, hell, I have to give it too the wife to let me keep bees. I do it for the fun.
I hate it when I find myself doing a job for less, because I give up a day of my life for a hive that has a 50/50 chance to live. It is far easier to trap swarms to get free bees.
My exceptions are helping broke little old ladies and broke single moms.
