    Default Finding Swarms

    Does anyone know if there is an App or a site that shares info on where swarms are? I've heard that there is one but I can find it. Thoughts?

    thanks for your time,

    -John

    The "Bee Forum" here has a swarm dates post sticky that you can read/search and find roughly when prime swarm season is in your area. I'm unaware of an App or website. Just got to get your name out there.

    In our area the local bee club has a swarm list that includes the names of people who sign up to catch swarms; perhaps a club in your area offers something similar?

    I also know on one Facebook page (this one is dedicated for keepers in our local area) that posts swarm finds. Of course craigslist is always a common resource but I don't know how much people ever go there to find a swarm catcher.

    One other idea; register yourself as with local police and fire departments; in our area that is a very common method to get swarm calls as people often call one or the other.

    Hope these help,
