I had a project that I had to do for my science class at school, and so I started doing an internship with a bee extermination company.
This was an advanced science class and we were supposed to find something that we were interested in and do a whole big paper and project out of it.
Anyway, I was interested in doing a honey and beekeeping project for the project and so I asked around all over the place to see if I could find a honey farm in our area. I was just going to volunteer there to get experience, but I couldn’t find a single honey farm anywhere close by to volunteer at and that’s how I ended up at a bee extermination company instead. I found out that this particular place never does bee extermination on bumble bees or honey bees, so that was good news. They actually always try to rehome and remove these types of bees whenever possible, since they are really important and good for the environment. Of course, I have no issue at all with killing wasps, hornets, or yellow jackets! Anyway, whenever I talked to the owner of the bee extermination company, he said that they usually only deal with yellow jackets. I got a lot of experience by working with him and I got a great grade on my project. Not only that, but I think I might actually be interested in going into the bee removal business myself someday! Once I graduate from high school, I might be a bee exterminator.
