Re: question about a cut out that was once fogged
If they've been fogged, I'd just walk away. Tell them to call a licensed entomologist to kill them out if he can. I hate doing cut outs so that's what my stance would be. If it's not too far, I'd consider a trap out with fresh brood and queen. I had some friends that had bees in their chimney. They asked me what I would do. I told them that I would handle the bees for them but that it would take about 6 weeks but I would get the bees out for them, doing a trap out. They decided that they would hire a "pro" who came by, sprayed a bunch of poison down the chimney and wrapped the top of the chimney with plastic, leaving the bees no option but to escape through the house! They ended up with upset bees in the house and several stings over 6 months. After that time they asked me to come and do my original plan. I had to tell them that that ship had sailed and I was no longer interested in removing their bees. For a while they didn't call me a friend but they got over it, realizing that it was their decision that strained our friendship, not my refusal. That was a hard lesson for me but sometimes you just have to walk away.
When you stop learning you're dead.
