Oh Seth, I don't believe that for a moment, smiling..... :roll: 8-) :) :) :). Have the best of a wonderful day, Cindi
Cindi, actually Seth has a very valid point even if he's being a little sheepish. If you're busy doing something up there you're not thinking of the height issue.
This past yr I got a call late one evening from a pastor that was starting a new church in an old bldg. It was one of those super busy type days where I was runnin' and gunnin' and I stopped by the church to assist with a bee hive approx 35' up.
Normally, I don't go that high up on a ladder but this day I was so busy and time was a real issue as it was an hour or so before nightfall.
The guy painting up there had already pulled a lot of the comb out but bees were everywhere and about 5' higher up than where they were working.
I told them I'd help right now if they could get me up there and they put two extension ladders together and off I went with bucket and tools in hand.
I pulled comb out and ushered what bees I could along w/ brood comb and queen and at one point I realized how high up I was on this dinky ladder and couldn't believe what I had done, that's when I got a little concerned but had to shake it off cause I had a job to do.
Iddee, that tree looks a lot like the one I was in yesterday and the bucket is identical, except it was connected to the boom from underneath. Dang thing did rock back and forth a little though, sort of gave me the willies.
