I was smiling when going up the ladder. But after being stung a few times up there, 30 feet up in the tree, I though it was not a good idea to risk my life for the bees, mite-resistant or not... The swarm was too far from the main trunk, and we had trouble cutting the branch. I ended up trying to shake the branch and let bees drop. Most workers did drop, but then they flew back in the mid-air. This must be awesome to watch on a video (but I think David Wang, the video-cameraman, ran away with others when they saw bees rained down!).
