Bees in the eave of a house need removing


Beth Phillippe sent this email to me yesterday. If any of you beeks are interested in helping this family, please call Beth.
If you could let members know that I was approached by a couple at the farmers market.  They have an A Frame house and bees are in the eaves.  She said that there is inside access to the area.  I have their name and number and will give it to who ever wants to tackle this and get free bees. Just call me.
Thank you,
Beth Phillippe
