(I'm posting this again because I think I put it in the wrong place the first time--sorry) The charge is $250 because (I was told) of the height to get at it is 12-15 feet and the fact that they are such nasty bees. I have read a little bit about it, and I see where they are beneficial (and also if provoked they are really nasty). Here's the thing though: It is located on the exterior of the house right outside of the deck window so isn't it conceivable that at some point they would try to come in the window onto the deck? I really don't want them in the house (DUH, right?). When the weather changes and it gets colder, wouldn't they have a tendency to try to come in? Also, I have two dogs who frequent the area underneath where the nest is located (again it's about 12-15 feet above the ground area); any concern there for them do you think? BTW I did look at your site and I see where you usually do the job in a couple of different trips. I was told this would be done in one trip. They would spray inside the nest, wait a bit, and then remove the nest. Thanks a lot for your advice.
