I've just been called by a tree lopper who has found a hive in a tree they're removing. They want it gone asap and they can't wait for a trap out etc. Apparently the hive is about 12ft up in a split in the tree - they can see atleast 6ft of vertical comb through the crack. I don't know if there is power on site to use a bee vac. But i was wondering if anyone has one in Melbourne that i might be able to borrow? Apparently you can reach in to the crack which i think is going to be the main way i remove the comb... I feel a billion stings coming out of this one! in any case it needs to be a cut out and i need to get as much of the comb as i can... I haven't seen the hive yet. Can anyone offer me any advice as to what i should do? This is my first cutout. I've also put a post in the general section as Downunder seems to have gotten CCD for winter but if anybody is browsing your input would be much much appreciated!
