    I saw a honey bee swarm this morning and I would like to bring it to the attention of a potential beekeeper, if they are interested in it's location. W 10th ST at the dead end before Bayfront. Here is a link for my pinterest image :)

    Hello, and Thank You for posting the information. With any luck, one of our members will be close enough to present the swarm with a new home! :thumbsup:

    I really wish I could scoop them up, but we are moving abroad soon. I keep walking over to check on them it is so breathtaking.

    Try calling the local county AG extension service in the morning as they will know who local bee keepers are most likely.


    I found something online

    click on Erie county and it gives a number and email

    They moved their home elsewhere today. Thank you for all of the great tips about who to contact!
