Hi Mark, The bees were in a large tree, so they are deciding if they want to consider taking the tree down, since the property is up for sale the realtor wants the bees out fast and was not interested in doing a trapout, which are usually unsuccessful on large old trees. I have not heard back, so they likely took some other option.
