Thanks, Kathy     Although I had human diseases in mind, the way it was posted. I guess one horse disease would qualify. Of course, house cats and others also seem to be riding in the same boat.

>>>>Recently, S. neurona sarcocysts have been identified in the muscles of cats, raccoons, armadillos, sea otters and skunks. Recent studies from Michigan and Florida have reported  S. neurona antibodies in 5% of domestic cats. A subsequent study has confirmed domestic cats to be natural carriers of this parasite (Stanek et al., 2003).<<<<

probably not something that anyone would know unless they had horses.  i had never heard of it until a few years ago when some horses in our area were sick with it.  since, it has either gotten more attention, or is better diagnosed.  it's not uncommon.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Philinacoma, just a suggestion, but what about a hessian bag with a strong draw string? rope the possum box up,pry it off the tree, when it's hanging in mid air leave it for a little while so that the disturbed bees return to the box. Then after a little time slip the hessian bag over the box and pull the drawstring tight. Throw another rope over the branch and attach that to the now closed hessian bag and lower away... the hessian bag should be strong enough to take the weight of the possum box and, if you need to put it in the car, the hessian bag should contain them.

Phil:

I took down a similar hive that was in an owl nest box up a phone pole.  I smoked 'em up good and used duct tape to seal the gaps in the wood and then plugged the hole with a big sponge.  It expanded nicely to seal the entrance without cutting off the air to them.  I put the box on my shoulder and climbed down the ladder.  Piece of cake.  I stood it up in the bed of my truck inside the rungs of my folding ladder and drove the 30 miles to my house without a single escapee.  I posted some pics of it awhile back--can't remember what I called the posting, though.  huh

The duct tape may not be helpfull in this case as there is at least one big comnb on the outside of the box. I think the hessian bag would be a goer though. Someone else suggested shade cloth and a staple gun, but I think a sack already to go would be quicker and easier, thanks. I think I'll do that one if the lady gives me a call back.

I've learned more off this post than I care to admit.
