Nests/hives have built up since sept/oct and it's hot so many are on the move again. I've had about 8 calls the last 2 weeks, 2 in walls, 1 bird box, 1 chimney, 4 in trees.

He is just past the Black Stump. Not far OzBuzz.

Hahhah somewhere near "Over Yonder" isn't it? I know the place! a few clicks past the old telegraph pole - hang a lefty at the dry stump and travel till you reach the old car wreck then you're just a stones throw away

Yep, same here. Collected 1 swarm Friday, 6 swarms on saturday, and 3 yesterday. Had to pass on a few cause I am constantly out of equipment.
