« on: June 30, 2012, 08:28:10 PM »
has now lowered his rate on honey bees to $162.38.. 150+tax..  I did a small cutout this morning and put it back together in the rain for 150 even.  small hive that was 2 months old with 6 combs, each about a 8" wide.  put em in a nuc.   I havent had a swarm call in a month.. sure do miss em, cant wait till next year.

He's likely just spraying those colonies and leaving a rotting mess. Also likely getting lots of call backs. You are welcome to show your potential customers my video of what can potentially happen when the spray job goes awry. Honey Bee Nightmare
