Re: Large feral hive hanging in tree
Try talking with one of the local fire chiefs about having them help you out with one of their ladder trucks. They generally like taking the trucks out for a ride now and then and may be willing to assist. I remember one time I called our local fire dept because we had a kitten climb about 75' up a huge maple tree in the front of our house and wouldn't come down for a few days. They were there in 30 minutes and the kitten was rescued. Things like this are always feel good stories for the local newspaper and a front page picture of you saving the bees with the help of the local FD might go a long ways to some postive beekeeping news. I was not able to open your picture link?
