Got a call this morning about a bee tree that had fallen, took out the power lines and narrowly missed a car and the house. KUB (the electric co.) would not work on the lines because of the bees so the home owner tied a chain to it and drug it out of the way. Huge maple tree and one of the large limbs had broken off in the recent storm we just had. Made quick work of it and they were just amazed at not getting stung since the home owner had taken several to the head trying to drag it out of the way. A little trim work with the saw, covered both ends with the old sheets and duct tape, plugged the entrance with burlap rag and they even helped me load it on the trailer. Not a single sting, imagine that. Good crowd that was wanting to listen and learn with plenty of basic questions, what a delight. Was told another beekeeper had been there before me but said he could do nothing with it, thanks Aaron :thumbsup: [attachment=4:3k8w0v8f]359.JPG[/attachment:3k8w0v8f] coming off of the trailer [attachment=3:3k8w0v8f]362.JPG[/attachment:3k8w0v8f] air borne.........once again [attachment=2:3k8w0v8f]364.JPG[/attachment:3k8w0v8f] this is the debris that fell out of the bottom...........

Will leave them there for a while and let them get their house back in order, hopefully the queen made it through it all. Was told it had thrown off several swarms.
