Any advance on $200?

Now here's an entrepreneurial beekeeper (in Indiana, USA):
Johnson corralled a cluster of 30,000 bees Tuesday afternoon that made a home two years ago beneath the floorboards of a vacant Franklin farmhouse. For his 90 minutes of work, he made about $200 and took home 100 pounds of honey to jar and sell.
The most I have ever charged is £50 (about $90) for removing a colony from a soffit while a house was being refurbished. It was in February and there wasn't a drop of honey to be recovered.

Anyone do better than $200? (I still think $200 is very good value considering the fees of most so-called experts in business.)
