    When people say they think they saw a swarm of "my" bees, I ask them if they had checked the ear tags .......

    A very creative way of advertising to get calls for swarms!

    That's just as good as the one I saw a couple of weeks ago where a beek was willing to PAY $25 to be able to come get a swarm!

    Though there is another person in Sacramento, I wont throw his name out, that I have seen on the news a couple of times advertising bees on the decline and how "we need to save the bees". Imagine my suprise when I got a call for a wall extraction last year and while talking to the owner of the property they told me "yeah, I called this guy (it was the same person that was on the news) and he told he that he'd come down and spray them for me.

    It does sound like a great way to get swarm calls...

    I like it too, good advertising, until they want you to get your bees out of their wall for free.

    Their is a guy in my area who was offering $20 for swarm calls last year. He was paid to "remove bees from a chimney" 2 weeks later they called me and I went and did a cutout. No idea what he did. I think if he does it this year I'm gonna have all my friends call him out. Oh really, they were here when I called, do I still get the $20?

    Heh, heh! Pretty funny! That's in my neck of the woods, actually. Too bad I didn't see them.

    My beekeeping teacher told us a story how he caught a swarm and the owner of the original hive demanded them back!!

    I'll do it. Taking the bees out is free. Repairing the building isn't. I won't do one without the other.

    I felt like doing the same thing yesterday when I lost my swarm. My husband and I joked about putting up LOST BEES signs in the neighborhood.
