I got a call this evening from a home owner that said I got bees on my maple tree about 20 feet up. I said send me a picture and it looked like a nice pile of bees. We had just finished dinner so I ask the brother-in-law if he wanted to watch me fall out of a tree or get stung, he said sure so after getting a dirty look from my wife we hustled over to house. after putting my borrowed ladder up to the tree I'm still 5 feet short. The guy next door brought out another ladder that I was able to put it in the tree and strap it off. I got my bucket and brush and brushed them into it. I never found the queen but I dumped them in the box and they started fanning at the entrance. I left a little opening and strapped the box to the ladder and the ladder to the tree. I'm thinking I'm going to have to leave my box and ladder at the house to let the rest of them fly in. I sure hope its there tomorrow, but if it is not somebody is getting a face full of bees, might detour a thief. I can only provide I picture because my brother -in-law is afraid of my wife and she would not have like what I had to do.
