I got 3 calls today. 2 for trouble bee's in homes. So I'll do cutouts on them and another was a swarm in a tree. It fit in a nuc just right. Good timing, I was grafting some queen cells into some nucs to make some queens for my hives to requeen soon. Not many calls this year.

I agree with you not many calls at all. For me...........zero swarm calls, one bee tree and a couple of cut outs is all.

glad to hear you are getting to do a little bee work, even though it is getting kind of late in the year for cut outs.

You should have said, "if you are giving them to me, just bring them on over!"

Free bees, yeah right.

beekeepers are suppose to work for free rast... they are all communist... don't ya' know?

invariable it is the folks with the highest incomes that seem quite adamant that 1) I as a beekeeper I need to come to their place and take care of THEIR problem right NOW and 2) I also need to do this for free.
