Did you charge em to inspect it? I am not going to go to anymore hives in roofs and if i do i will charge for coming out and checking it. Surprising how many people grumble when i say i would like to cover my costs and i know them to be less than half what pest control costs and you get to save the bees!
I have had a few calls for places up your way and told the people to call you. Another today in a chimney in Chelthnam...did they call you too?
I didn't charge to inspect, but I am getting fussy about where I go. It has to suit me. I got called out to a flat in Balwyn where they had bees in the Kitchen. I did that because I felt a bit sorry for them. Got there and there was a lot of dead bees even though they had not sprayed recently. They had obviously been poisoned in some way. I looked through the cupboard where they were comming in but there was no sign of the queen there or on the window. It was the first time I have recommended the can.
The chimney call was the second for the weekend. No one wants their chimney pulled down to remove the bees. Both had working fireplaces, so I suggested lighting a small very smokey fire before they get established in there. I don't know if there was a better way, hopefully if there is someone here can suggest it.
