Hey guys. I was calling all of the local exterminators in the yellow pages to give them my number for swarms. Most said that they won't have anything to do with honey bees. That's what I expected them to say. Others, however, said things like "oh, no thanks, we exterminate honey bees". I thought there were laws of some sort against exterminating them... something to do with the feral population being endangered. Did I make this up?
