cut out advice/set up
Was contacted by some folks looking to get a colony out of an oak tree. Bees are starting to gather on the front porch light, and such...now they figure the leaner is hollow and a threat to the roof.
The way this tree leans, I am not sure about ladders, etc. Their plan is to take the tree out once the bees are relocated. I'd guess it's 12'-14' up, I only have extension ladders for that height, no a-frame.
Thought about trying to nail something to the tree, but the angles are odd, and have thought about using ropes and getting fancy. Leaning at weird angles and swinging hammers or ropes isn't on the top of my list. Fees were not established, but the folks are strapped.
Anyone have a blinding flash of the obvious, that I've missed, to set up a trap out?
