    You'll be hanging them from the telephone wires next! The angle of the shot insinuates some insane altitude, but I'm guessing that this is within reach of your roof.

    Waste of effort....I have caught 20 each of the last two years all reachable standing on the ground. A swarm is not worth breaking your neck for.

    It's only 11' feet off the ground, unless I crank it up. I've read they prefer heights of 10' or more.
    Its also a good experiment for RF energy IE cell phones & bees
