Re: How to price bee removal
Bees in low wall in garage with plain drywall. That's easy and around $300.
Bees in masonry 30 feet off the ground? Scaffold rental? Extra man?
Travel? We charged $1500 to remove bees from masonry and then put back like before.
There have been jobs I walked away from because it was too much. Typically it's inside and up 3 or 4 flights of stairs. Have done a few like that and you're like a zombie for three days afterwards and you can't pay me enough for that.
Have been getting very picky about which removals I will do. Get burned just once or twice and you get that way.
Wish I had twenty bucks for every time I get a call from someone with a bee tree that thinks they're going to get a free tree removal just for the bees. Have met some doozies and it happens every two weeks or so. So I'm done with bee trees. Urbana, Illinois is "Tree City USA" and dang they got a lot of feral bees. I'm well-stocked anyway.
Internet credibility is an oxymoron
