Bee extermination can be a tough business

Bee extermination can really be a tough business sometimes.

I never really thought that I would have such a hard time at certain jobs that I would end up getting hired for.

When I first decided to become a bee extermination professional about two years ago, I honestly thought that it would be an easy job. I thought that since I would be a bee exterminator with my own business, I could be my own boss and make my own hours and stuff like that. And as long as you aren’t terrified of bees or allergic to wasps or yellow jackets, then the whole thing should be pretty low key and stress free, right? Well, sometimes, I guess that’s true enough. But then other times, you end up with a contract that will take you completely by surprise and off guard. That happened to me last year with a bee removal job I had to do at a restaurant here in town. They had a wasp infestation near their kitchen. They had workers and customers getting stung by wasps on almost a daily basis when they hired me to come and fix it. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I got there to do the extermination job. There were wasp nests all inside the roof at the rear of the restaurant. There were probably a dozen of them in a small area, and it wasn’t like anything that I had ever seen before. It was crazy! I hate ladders and heights and I didn’t enjoy having to be up there on the roof one bit when I was killing the wasps.
