  13. 13. Dear  Resident, We’ve  noticed  high  bee  activity    near   your  address.  If  you  find  a  bee  hive,   please  help  us  by  reporting  it’s  location   at  www.beemail.com.  A  professional   will  clear  the  area  in  the  next  few  days. This  card  can  be  used  as  a  temporary   deterrent  to  bees  until  removal  services   are  able  to  clear  the  area.  Please  use   when  you  are  outdoors  near  your  home. RESIDENT The  card  is  made  with  a  non-­toxic  bee   repellant.  Tear  or  cut  into  four  pieces;;   5555 Lucille Lane each  can  be  used  separately  when  and   San Francisco, CA 94110 where  desired.  To  use,  scratch  the   striped  yellow  area  and  place  in  the  area   you  wish  to  guard.   This  is  only  a  deterrent.  It  decreases  the   likelihood  of  bee  activity,  but  does  not   guarantee  against  it’s  possibility. Sincerely, For  more  information,       BeeMail visit    www.beemail.com.  Tuesday, November 23, 2010
