I've read all the Bee Tree removals I can find on the site and only have a couple questions left. . .
Situation: Huge ash tree in the middle of town. The bees just moved in last Tuesday (5/22/07). Got a call from the lady this week saying she is terrified of them and wants them gone! I've set it all up w/ a tree removal guy and we are going to meet in the morning. He is going to cut them limb they are in and I'm taking it home on a trailer to do the actual removal there.
I'm thinking I should cover the only hole I can see on the tree tonight so they are all there when we go to cut the limb in the morning. Does that sound reasonable? Would window screen mesh work to cover the hole with or should I use something else?
Since they've only been there a week and a half do we need to worry about getting the comb out and rubber banding it onto frames?
Here is the link to pictures of the tree. Any other advice would be appreciated!
