I did that just the other day and actually fell from the tree.

Luckily I woke up just before hitting the ground! grin

But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

I'm guessing that if you climb enough trees, the bees will let you know where they are.

120 ft up?   surely you can spot them from the ground.  Most folks have enough problems spotting nest 30-40ft up.

The climbing part I could do 50 years ago, when I was 15. The honey robbing, tho, might be a bit more scary. All I ever found in the squirrel nests were possums, squirrels, and bumble bees. It didn't take long to descend when it was bumbles.

I don't think our trees are quite 120 feet, tho.

Does it do any good to swat the bee once you are already stung?
