Removal in the rain
Good Day -- I had a removal from a fallen log scheduled for this morning. Usually I wouldn't do it as it is raining but wondered if anyone has done one in the rain. I was thinking of putting an easy up tent over my workspace and getting to work. Figure the bees will bee grumpy about it, but they will all be there and I can suck them up in the bee vac.
I am putting them in a top bar -- so the cooler weather will make it easier to tie in the comb as it has been quite hot and last week I cancelled out on a 105 degree day with 100% humidity.
Any thoughts? Am I crazy?
Re: Removal in the rain
Are you crazy? Hmmm, you have BEES, don't you? You do removals too....Yes, I'm afraid you're certifiable...(jk)
The tent sounds like a plan..I don't like working while being rained upon. I would suit up for the girls, in case they are grumpy.
Wish we had your rain here in IN.
