"You can never tell with bees"
WOW! That's a great job! Did the academy supply the high lift?
Yes Judy. The removal was coordinated with a roofing company who is doing repairs on the property as well. Thosed pieces of slate where very big, weighing 30-60 lbs each. Over an inch thick, two feet or more tall and 12-18 inches wide...i'm still recovering physically..it took all i had..but i enjoy it, it's my job, it's what i do..
Ah, well that explains how they noticed the bees. I just finished 3 cut-outs from scaffolding. I'm sure you had a good time 3 stories up! I'm glad you loved it, lol.
The head maintenance man has been there 13 years and said theres been a colony there as long as he can remember. The roofer has been servicing this campus for 10 years, the (roofs) are so large no other roofer wants to touch it, and a trust issue for the academy, he says it was here on his first day (10 yrs ago). The finance director was just hired on and "inherited" this situation, it was her who called for a humane relocation and won approval. it was not cheap, all in a days work. i do three or more relocations a week starting in april. everyone is different for sure!
