I met with the owners yesterday. The wife has gone into anaphylactic shock before and the husband is only allergic to wasps and hornets, not honeybees. Because of this I have abandoned the trap out idea, and they do not want a bait hive on the property. There is no access to the colony from behind the steps and from what I could see with a borescope, there is all new white comb. This was probably a swarm from this year. I gave the homeowner a quote to remove the top landing and extract the bees, but, they are concerned with the allergy issue and asked me to just exterminate. I don't do exterminations as I am not here to kill bees, but left them with a quote and proposal if they change their mind.
