What should I do? This year has been terrible for me thus far with doing cut outs and swarm retrievals. Every time I get a call from a potential client I keep getting under shot on my bid. I can't do cut outs for free! I charge a reasonable $50 an hour. Am I asking to much? I don't think I am seeing all the other beekeepers on here are charging anywhere from $50-$100 per hour to do cutouts. There's not a huge profit margin when charging only $50hr when taking into consideration the cost of hives, upkeep, and medication. Last year I had no problem and no questions were asked. I did 15 different cutouts. This year I have a new guy in my area undershooting every quote I give my potential clients. I'm getting fed up. Wat do you all think?
