    I caught 6 swarms this year, but only 1 last year. This was my first year being retired, so I was around full time for people to contact me about swarms. I also get calls about hornets and wasps, but I try to ask enough questions so I know if it's bees or not.

    I have found that cell phones and emails are enormously helpful in weeding out the wasp/hornet/yellowjacket people. Just about everyone (except hubby and me, lol) has cellphones with cameras these days, and many/most people can send emails right from their phones. Saves a lot of running around.
