    yea those are man made hives...they are russians back to swarm....we were afraid of it and did as much as we could to stop it....but they are in the tree...so they can live free and die in several months..that is the worse part..they wont live in the wild... i took the pics to convince the man i really couldnt recover the swarm

    man has a couple sets of shaffolding .....so said what about the other 15 ft...this is not gonna be good...he is just being all pissy cause i told him to get phenephomes or whatever....to bait an empy hive in the woods or upper pasture but nooooooooooooooooooo ....he fucking is a walking fountain of damned information....

    now my options..go out and encourage his stupid ass....so i can pics of him falling...or be a good wife...

    i don think the fall will kill him

    o if they are reachable..which they are not....you take a large box or a bucket...place it under the swarm and hit the swarm branch to make them fall into said box or bucket.... as long as you catch the queen the others will follow...

    right now i am in the wait for him to make up his mind mood....it told him he should be able to climb the tree in his full suit...rope the limb ....cut it off and lower it to me..in my 1/2 suit....he is considering it....i will end up stung....i always do...

    I've been stung a couple of times, everytime it seems like the little bastards are aiming just for me. It's definately painful.

    you have to be careful....some people take stings as a medical thing....not me....the worst one to me is in the wrist joint....it will swell and hurt for days....i always love the nose or lips stings...
