I’ve had a busy week dealing with enquiries and checking on my own hives, as well as fitting around work and family. A combination of circumstances has led me to change my policy on free site visits.
- My business is honeybees, and while I’m happy to advise on bumblebee and wasp problems a string of frustrating and futile visits to misidentified honey bees has taken a lot of time – 4 visits in a week that turned out to be bumblebees.
- Bumblebee and wasp problems are unlikely to result in a paid job, so by offering free consults on these I end up out of pocket as well.
So in future I will still offer site visits, but will charge a nominal figure of £15 to cover my petrol and time. Should it turn out that you have honeybees and want to go ahead with a removal then the £15 will be deducted from the quote.
