An add on craigslist has led to a lot of cut outs for me, and a few swarm calls, i think i get a lot of responce for the cut outs because so few people around me keep bees, and the ones that do wont touch a cut out.
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.

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!
In our small towns try the city halls, sherriffs office, conservation dept and local pest control guys, they dont like messing w/ bee's! anymore word of mouth gives me a few. So far 4 calls this season(2 where over 6 hrs away so I search the sites and foun folks closer!). Kinda slow this year so far.
