I'm doing my first trap out.  Should I be concerned because the home owner tried to kill the hive before they called to have them removed.  There were 4 cans of bug spray on the ground when I arrived.  Are the bees dead already and they don't know it?

In reality those bees are very stressed right now.  Not to mention all the comb has poison contamination. High chance the bees won't survive a cutout. And the hive isn't safe. Would you eat honey from a hive that was poisoned?

Ditto on walking away. If for some reason you do do it, double your price.
