I put a Craigslist ad in for honey bee removal and swarm capture. Got my first call saturday night. Story is this couple have a new baby and they are getting bees in the babies room. Making the room useless to them and a big inconvenience. He asked if I could come look at it in the morning, Easter Sunday. The place is about a half hour away and decided to look on Easter anyway. After reviewing the situation, I decided to decline helping the guy. These are the reasons: 1. the house was in bad disrepair on the exterior. red brick to the top of the first floor then shake shingle siding up to the soffit. There were so many holes, cracks, and openings in the brick and the first two courses of shingles all the way around the house were dry rotted, peeled up and creating and endless opening for critters.. 2. After repeating that I was there for the bees and was not particularly interested in the carpentry after the removal. I said depending on how much needs dismantled, if it would be easy I would close things back up. The home owner was still thinking that I would make all right when I was done. If I would start uncovering major structural damage, I think there could have been a problem. 3. the home owner wanted this done in the next day or two. I could have done it with the main job schedule, but the weather is still dipping into the 30's at night, 50's in the day time. Also the location was on the NW side of the house which I thought was odd. 4. I think the bees are located in the floor of the babies bedroom. I could smell comb when I entered the room. I told the home owner that if I could confirm that, the action would be to open the floor to get to them. He was balking at that in regard to the intrusion and mess. I feel bad because the guy is going to get an exterminator. I informed him the cons of doing so. If someone local wants to help this guy out, message me and I'll give the contact info. Does anyone have other stories of walking away for one reason or another? This kinda put a hitch in my get along, especially with my inexperience. I had that feeling tugging at me that this would end up a quagmire. I think I did the right thing for me, but let the bees down.
