Trying to figure out why I am getting so many calls, when the season is dying out. I have come up with this theory of what I call the “6 month wonders” They think bee removal is easy and lucrative. It takes just one serious encounter with a colony of killer bees. Or the pain of watching all your bees die as a result of colony collapse disorder. To knock them out of the game. If that does not get them, the financial burden of saving bees for a living finally gets them. They always seem to start in spring and be gone by fall. They undercut everyone, cause a lot of damage and get a lot of people stung. But I suppose this is part of the game, I am not resentful. The hardworking dependable bee removal guys, always win out in the end.  My saving grace is distributing the bees, for free, evenly among the bee society. That way I don’t have to deal with a massive bee yard, Coastal california is just not the place to raise bees for money. That is why I just raise a few for pets. And help replace all the bees everyone in San Diego is loosing
