Dead bee removal, maybe?
Get a call on Tuesday evening from a woman very close to my home and she tells me of this "huge hive" in a bush in her front yard and starts asking about the cost. I would have had no problem doing it for free for the bees and the fun of it but before I get to that she tells me she's allergic and needs them out ASAP. I ask if she knows whether they are honey bees or wasps and she says the guy she had out earlier to spray them said they were honey bees. "What?! You've already had them sprayed? You mean with insecticide?" "Yes, but some are still alive and I need them removed." I ask why the guy that sprayed did not remove them and she says he told her to call a beekeeper. Nice! What a tool. I ended the conversation at this point with, "Sorry, I can't help you with this. I have no use for dead bees." She was not happy.
Two days later another woman not far away calls to ask me to come and remove bees near a vent on her house. In the second sentence she mentions that her husband has already sprayed them but some are still alive. Of course..... I ended the conversation at this point with, "Sorry, I can't help you with this. I have no use for dead bees."
Today I started thinking that maybe I should be nice to these people and see if I can fatten my wallet a bit. I use a homemade bucket vac when necessary so I could get a second bucket to use only for sprayed bees and tell them I'd be happy to help if we can agree on a fee - a fat fee.
