    i am already prepared for this question to get redirected to the hornets forum, but i'll ask here first anyways. how do you guys handle clients that have lawns that include huge nests of stinging creatures? do you ask them to take care of it before you'll treat the lawn or do you wear an astronaut suit going into the danger zone or what?

    I tell them that it has to be treated before I'll come back. They have two choices, Let me treat it or call an exterminator. I won't come back till the do one or the other.

    I've been stung more than I ever want to already. :cry:

    usually by the time i realize they have a bee's nest, i'm standing in the middle of it doing a rain dance and slapping the **** out of myself. so i just try to finish the job and stay away from that area.when i come back again, i spray it.
