How do you begin to receive swarm calls? Do you leave your name and number with local police and fire departments?

Get yourself listed on this and other websites as someone who captures swarms. Calling the city animal control is a good way to do it as well.

Wow, that didn't take long! :D

Yeah, I guess I better set down the layout right away.

Please use this format when sending me the info. Eventually the form will require you to enter info in this format. Still adding states.

Name:
Location (where you live): (example: Baltimore, MD)
Phone #(s):
Email:
Website: (if applicable)
Comments: (Give description of the scope of work performed, areas you will work, prices (including FREE), and any other info you want listed.

Thanks.

At this point, you can send me this info by any means.

The animal control and county extension offices are great suggestions. I would also suggest you contact your local 9-1-1 dispatch center (please call their business number- not 9-1-1!!) and ask to talk to a supervisor. Tell them who you are and what you do. Ask that they put you on their call list for bee removal. Virtually all dispatch centers have a list like that and people almost always call 9-1-1 when there is a swarm near by (trust me-people freak out). They would be the ones to know about a swarm even before animal control in many cases. I would also talk to your local fire department and give them the same information. Good luck!
