This morning I was called by a furniture store about a swarm behind their building. The swarm was on a guardrail type post between their property and the news station's property. The news station had already called somebody else but I arrived first. When the other beek arrived he let me take the swarm as he played commentary on the mic for the camera. All went well and the swarm was put in the box with only one sting to the camera man. They interviewed both of us beeks. They asked questions about why the bees do this. What should be done about it and how they can contact a beekeeper to come collect the swarm. They asked why we think it is important to save the bees rather than spray them. They said that it would likely be the main story on tonights news. I think this is going to be great for educating people on bees and helping to save them. I will post a link to the news story as soon as it runs and they post it online.
Direction to view the story: I was quite disappointed at how much they cut out of the story. They didn't even include much of the directions on what to do and how to know who to call. Once again the media lets me down.
