Just to spite me


Bees must know I have a problem with heights.  This removal was on a lanai three stories up.  I had vertigo the whole time.  We are into doing things safely, and I tied off while I was working.  When we opened it up we saw there had been a hive in the same area many years ago.  At least the person who did the removal took the comb out, so many don’t.  We got the bees out, but because they bunched up so far out we couldn’t scoop them.  So we got as many as we could and put the nuc on the lanai above the entrance. We came back two days later and everyone had moved into the nuc. The bad thing is that I forgot my infra red camera in my suit pocket and put the whole thing in the washer.  I am hoping it will dry without damage.
