I got a call today from a lady from Texas. Seems her family has a cabin over in the Thomasville, Alabama (Clarke County) area that a colony of honey bees has moved into. I was in a bad reception area for my cellphone so didn't get a lot of information other than the bees are in a soffit. They found the bee removal list on the Alabama Beekeepers Association website but did not find any beeks from the area that were interested in doing the removal.
I'm not sure of the property owner's readiness to pay to have a removal done, but they live in Texas and have a cabin in south Alabama which I figure is for deer hunting purposes so I would think they could handle financing a removal...whether they *want* to pay for one is another story for the potential bee remover to cover with them. If anyone is interested in the removal give me a holler and I'll get your contact info to the property owners. I would give it a try myself but I'm 100 miles away and it would be my first removal...if I went I'd probably forget my smoker.
