Hello. ..I am not a bee keeper nor do I want to be!   I can hear a hive in a tree and wondering if there are folks like ya'll that come and get bees as opposed to calling an exterminator who will kill them.   I am aware of the extinction of bees.  I am not willing or able to mess with them myself.   Please contact me asap if you can either remove them or put me in contact with someone who will.   This is not an issue I have alot of time or money to deal with. .. we havepeople in our family highly sensitiveto insect bites/stings- please help!  renefreedomfighter@gmail.com

Talk to a local beekeeper and ask about having the bees there. Your family members are 20 times more likely to be stung by another venomous insect than a honeybee. The bees in the tree are 1 % the danger you imagine them to be. Get the family in a safer physical shape rather than trying to keep the bees away. It is many times more successful.

Agreed, and the removal, unless done by someone just starting out, who still believes in free bees, is going to cost real American dollars.
