A student from MSU called me saying there was a large nest of wasps in her house and one can reach it. After seeing her picture, I told her it was honey bees, but if she really wanted to get rid of them, I could help. I thought it was about 6 ft from the ground and it would be easy since the nest was exposed. All my students decided to join the adventure and learn something about bee removal. Sept 5, 2002. 6:30 pm.
