Yes Annette, I used the vac because of the height issue and because there were two hives instead of one. I was told there was one hive and because of height and time restraints I elected to use the vac.
Also, the camp was being rented by the national guard and they wanted the bees gone now!
Couldn't leave a box to allow them to orient, I had to get it all done in one shot.
This camp is also approximately 45 minutes from my house.
