To the Editor:
I need some help and I don’t know what to do.
For years I have complained about my neighbor to the city and he cleans up to pass their inspection and then it goes back. He has bees in his house and has had them for years. He will spray them and they might go away for a while but come back.
The bees are getting worse and there are little kids who live next door.
If we go outside and try to do anything, the bees start to attack us.
My wife called the city this morning to try and have code enforcement come and look at the problem; she was told they do not deal with bees; we would have to call animal control.
She called animal control and they said for us to call a pest control company.
It is not my property; it is nextdoor.
The city said they have no control over this.
My question is, when does someone have control?
Is it when a child is stung by a dozen bees and that child is allergic to them?
I had no idea that we have code enforcement to allow people to keep property the way this is kept.
