.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I  have received a couple calls from it but they were both over 200 miles from me. Tried to find someone in their area for them but had no luck.

Craigslist is great for getting swarm calls.  It's probably one of the best sources... that and police/fire departments.

How do you list it on craigs list.

Under which category.

I'm under for sale, farm and garden??  home and garden??  something like that.
Then I title the add free bee swarm removal,   (clinton area) 

then you show up under most general searches.  I'm sure it probally should be listed under services, technically, but you wouldn't show up for most searchers.

I am listed on several online resources. I am not sure if any of the callers used this site, but I have gotten all but one call from online searches.

I also get a lot of calls from people who have no idea what a honey be is. Others are from great distances and cannot fine anyone local for removals.
Lots of false alarms! Like..."I seen bees in the flowers in my garden, can you get them out of there??" Or, 'there are honey bees in a big paper nest under the gutter of my house!'

Tons of calls about 'bumbles' and one call about big black and yellow/orange butterflies bothering cold drinks at their pool!  rolleyes You know that you have to watch out for those drink stealing buttflies!

I just got one from a referal, President of the Loudon County beeks and from craigs list.

It is going to be a cut out on a 3 seasons porch, what ever that is. She said it was about 2 feet off of the ground and she would have her friend put the boards back on the house, can't beat that. Been there three weeks, and did not want the exterminators to kill them out. We will see later this afternoon.
