Swarm collection in Mentone
« on: March 15, 2011, 07:09:33 PM »
Good Mornig everybody,

Just wondering if anyone is close to menton who might be able to go out and do a swarm collection? I'm flat stick with work and won't be able to get out there to do it and the lady is quite anxious to get them removed. She'd prefer a no or minimal fee...

Cheers

Oz

I'm hearing ya - although i saw a swarm on a tree near my hives the other day (and it didn't come from any of my hives). Go figure...

I have had a few calls in feb...but everyone wants me to come for free and none seemed very easy so i didnt go. We even had a wild swarm fly through our backyard while we were having brekky in Feb.

If the swarm is still there I can prob get there over the next few days (sorry about late response, just joined forum). No fee, have an empty box at present.
