Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

I decided to go up there and do a resonance look, but ended up collecting them, you couldn't put a ladder to where they where but i could stand on the roof of my van



I got about 2-3lb of bees and brought them back and put them in a wood box.. we will see tomorrow if they will hang about. The cardboard boxes are ok but last time the swarm i captured flew off so we will see...
 
We did eventually cut the limb down all along it the bee's had tried to start building comb...

I recall a picture of Understudy using a ladder on top of his car. yes on top of a car-yikes.
