    I have a guy that wants some bee's removed in an older(1920-1940) brick w/ stucco house. Its located in the upper corner window on the first floor of a 2nd story house. It has a history of havingthem from the previous tennant w/ the statement to the new owner of honey dripping from the ceiling. Soo this could be a big job.
    Has anyone done cutouts in an old brick home like this(Iddee)? What procedure did you use?
    How did you charge etc

    They are likely in the joists between the ceiling and the second story floor. I would go into the ceiling of the first floor. Sheetrock is easier to replace than brick. They may have comb for 6 to 8 feet from the outside wall, so you will have to go that way to get them all anyway.

    Don't worry. There will be many that do accept. Especially when the other beeks in the area get wind of what you charge and start doing the same.

    I never got a call back on it.
    Iddee, I priced it like your suggestion but not getting any hits. Fine w/ me for now but I had some nice bee ware planned to get w/ my profits of cutouts. Maybe next year.
