Iddee, I cut my hair every day :-D
Kathy, yes, the entrance was at ground level and the comb was attached 8' up.
TommyT, The last 3-4 removals I've done were just FULL of SHB! I don't know if this was a particularly bad year for them? The bees seem to keep them corralled and under control some how.
JP, I didn't even know I could do that overlay stuff until it just "happened"...cool. Peggy's getting better but still can't do much. I guess the bones won't fully knit for another month or so :'(
