This removal was at the very top of the ceiling, almost 20 feet up, that is way too high for me. I would have to hold on to the ladder with both hands, it is kind of hard to do a removal hanging on with both hands. Thankfully we got help, the kid didn’t mind getting up on the ladder and doing the work. This hive was at least 5 years old, and they had attached the comb to the drywall, it was really dark, almost black. From the time we made the appointment to the time we got there she had sprayed the bees and killed 95% of them. When we opened up the wall the smell was bad, and the dead bees just rained out. We removed the comb and had to toss it, we had to use a new piece of drywall, but we got it done.
