    Default Hello everyone.....Request for advise in Northern California

    Well I did it now.... A third year beekeeper I am....Thought I would try my hand at a "Simple" effort at bee removal...easy tasks like removing a swarm from a garage overhang..tree...something simple that I would not need a ladder over ten feet....So I had my local Ag department put me on a list for swarm removal. Wonderful, great all is right with the world.... after a few successful removals I started thinking about liability. Can anyone suggest a simple template for a hold harmless agreement?
    Thank You in advance

    Hi From Concord.
    If you're talking swarm removal you aren't going to damage someones property, but cutouts are a different thing. You really should be insured for cutouts, & have a contractors license for any repairs you do on the structure.

    Welcome Sheila! In our litigious society it is wise to have insurance for everything. If you chose to accept compensation for swarm removal it is even more important. Stinging incidents may not involve the persons signing the hold harmless and you are out of luck.
    Though rarely enforced, cut-outs and trap-outs are "pest control" by definition. Most states require substantial insurance for PCO operations on anyone elses property. Claims fly through court for illegal activities. It is all about risk though. If you do not mind paying the other guys kids college education, go for it.
    I have captured many swarms and a few cut-outs. Some of them are posted here and on my website.
