I like the first one on the first post, the second one's images do not really relate to the bee angle that your card seems to be pushing and it comes over a little wishy washy.  Use the back of the card wisely to add the deatils of the services offered.  I think the no chemicals used is a good angle as well.

Yep, that's my opinion as well. I was staring at a blank page and decided to plug in the company logo. If I use it at all I will downsize it and stick it at the bottom or something. I just wasn't sure how to fill in the blank.
I really do need to start pushing my logo for brand ID. Maybe when I get around to lettering the truck. LOL

Typo?? I thought you had discovered a new species, the bam owl.  grin

I would NOT use the "no chemicals" line. That could stop you from using something like Bee-quick, or some may even call smoke "airborne chemicals".
It would leave too much for interpretation, and possibly by a judge. You don't want to give some idiot that chance.

Here's the new and improved back of the card. The no chemicals tag is a marketing thing that is VERY important to many in my market. Back in the day when I did apply registered products I had some customers who would read the labels on everything I used. To be literally correct I should stipulate NO EPA REGISTERED PESTICIDES USED but that is a little to correct. I'm not sure if the lettering comes through well I played with different colors.

BTW, there is an interesting story behind that exposed comb.

sorry to repost the cards, just making sure I'm being clear - I think if it were me I'd switch these two cards - the words on the first card seem to go better with the second card & the other way around. I was kind creative with my business cards and business name, I know I got the message across, but it was a rare person who caught on quickly - I think I was a little too clever with the name and logo.

Personally, I agree with discarding the "no chemicals ever used" statement - it could open the door for sticklers. If you don't already have them you might consider adding linkedin and a facebook commuinty page on your website, each have the option of closed groups for professional discussions.  I like your first two images the best.

to bee honest,  I would bee careful about the "guaranteed" live removal thing too.

Sad to say, but out of the many removals  I have done, there have been a couple where the bees got themselves into a place they could not bee gotten out of and the remaining bees had to bee "put to sleep" so the job of making the client's house bee free could bee finished.

It does happen.  hopefully it;s a rare thing.

if you do have or get a LinkdIn and/or Facebook page, look me up. we can talk bee stuff.

As an alternative, you might consider hitting the customer's needs a little more directly.

I assume your customer's want the "pest" out of their house.  Humanely is preferred, but out is necessary.

So something like "Out of your home, back to the hive.  Guaranteed".  Yes technically it is a hive in their house, but most non-beeks won't think of it that way.

And "Pesticide Free" might say everything you need as far as chemical usage.

Thanks for the input. I'm going with Pesticide-Free on the card.

Bigbear, for those situations it's either trap out, sub out or walk away. I'm going to let my applicator's license lapse and not picking up the DCO license. No reason to open my entire operation to the dept of AG when sting insects and honeybees make up less than ten percent of my operation. I am considering sulpher though as it is not a registered product.

AllenF, if I offered that it would be an admission of failure. Besides the real money is in the exclusion (structural seal) to prevent reentry. Seal it and put a warranty on it. Do that and any reentries are on the house.

I have another one I'm proud of but it isn't bee related but I'll share it anyway since it's my real money maker.

Boy I can really use your help now, something is crawling around in our attic and making a racket at night. Constant scratching and sounds like it is rolling something along the attic floor.
