I got my first cutout scheduled this will be the 9th hive in 3 years I have cutout of this church. All in different areas. Not sure why the church is such a magnet for swarms. Bad thing is this one is going to be on a 40 foot ladder.

40' ladder?!? WOW. I think I would have to demand that they rent a bucket truck or cherry picker or something at that point. I hate 20' ladders, much less 40' ones. I fell off a 20' one onto a concrete floor (well, technically I landed on the ladder which landed on the concrete), it was not fun.

40 foot is up there alright, I still think I hold the record at 85 foot in the crane basket.

Please be careful on that ladder and good luck on getting them.

Baskets and ladders are two different things... still, wouldn't want to look down. But I'd definately feel at least a little safer in a basket.
