Friend called, got some bees in his tree. Is it difficult to remove the bees/cutout?
Here are two photos.

This is a perfect candidate for a trap out.

The hive is in the tree on the left under the words bee hive. Trap out or take the whole tree down.

I just finished three trap outs in trees that are very similar to the one you show. They work great (especially if you don't have a bad SHB problem). Thanks iddee for all the great info!

The hive has been there for a year or more. THe hole is probably deep huh?
It's a protected Oak tree in this area so can't cut it down. But I bet this
tree will be coming down in the next few big storms as the hole rots some more each year.

It may possibly fall but it looks like a "Live Oak" to me.  Those things live quite a while and are as tough as nails no matter the damage.  I do agree that thebest plan of action is a trap out.  Having that flat area around the opening is simply cheating... Wink  If SHB's do show up it won't hurt the tree and the hive will be destroyed though.
