The family lives a couples of blocks from me.  I am going to take a look at it and see what the bees look like.  I will let everyone know.

Bob, good luck with the City and thanks for leading the way! Please tell us how it goes.

I have several of those that I use. It is also a good idea to put your rates on them if you are charging. I used to charge, but most of the time I just work for tips these days. I don't do nearly as many removals as I used to.

Great idea James! I would love it if you would post yours, I'll print it off and put in my cutout kit.

Comment by James H DAWDY on March 6, 2014 at 6:04pm

Just FYI for everyone doing cutouts: get the property owner to sign a hold-harmless release.  It only takes a moment, and you have it on paper that they were advised of damage, potential for bees stinging, etc.  I have one somewhere if anyone needs one.

I emailed back and forth with Mr. Worthen and they are in an El Paso Electric sub panel box.  El Paso Electric is sending out an environmental employee to evaluate the situation. 

Comment by W.C. Arnold Jr. on March 6, 2014 at 8:06am

I sent Mr. Worthen an email to see if he could send a picture of the situation to see how difficult the cut-out would be.
