This is one I did about two weeks ago. The bees were in a soffit of a roof section approximately 45' up. Rented a 50' tow behind lift courtesy of our very own V Martin (Mike Martin). Mike hooked me up with a good rental company on the other side of the Ms river from me. This lift was awesome & very well maintained. This was the longest tow behind I've ever rented and it made backing up into a driveway while avoiding gates, plants, other vehicles etc.... very challenging!
The only drawback is the small working platform. With my tools, bucket of water, bucket for scrap comb, bee vac & myself, there wasn't hardly any room for anything else let alone a camera with tripod. The footage I took was all hand held so this is not my usual video showing step by step progress but I do offer footage with updates and pictures showing what the hive looks like and the progression of the removal as to how it played out.
I decided I will be renting this lift again on other removals that require a 50'er and will also be using it to cut down a large Sweet Gum tree in my back yard.
Thanks again Mike for the hook up!
