Jun 8 Honey Bee Removal Certification To provide the highest level of consumer protection, the Georgia Structural Pest Control Commission updated the state regulations to create a state certification category for honey bee control and removal. Before the amendment, the regulations required a household pest control license to remove honey bee colonies from structures. This rule applies to the professional control and removal of an established colony in a structure. Part of the state certification program requires attendance of an approved 8-hour training program. This class is the approved 8-hour training. The cost is $20.00 and lunch will be provided. The class will last 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Register for this training by June 1 by email at email@example.com
