It’s also amazing how many people think because you’re a beekeeper that your are in the extermination business. I will get calls asking if I can come get bees out of a building. When I say sorry I no longer have the time or energy to get a hive out of a wall. And that I only handle swarms now.
The next question is will you come and destroy them for us? I will politely tell them I am not in the honeybee extermination business. And they need to call a licensed exterminator.
I even was told by a lady that she had already done that but was told that Michigan law prohibits the extermination of honeybees by licensed exterminators.
All I could say was Da!!
