Ok so I’ll start a new thread for us west Aussie folk with our swarm captures and more.
Being in the best state for keeping bees without all those pesky pests we should show off our… Well brag about our fortunes.
I’m a member of several WA bookface sites and am blown away by the amount of swarms and captures around the Perth area and this arvo I got a swarm call for help.
Like I need any more bees!
They were in a friends rental and needed removing one way or another. The tenant was great and loved the bees but with summer coming the swarm had to go so they could comfortably use the area.
20 minutes after arriving…
Too easy, beautiful, friendly bees, no stings, barely even a hint of aggression. Unlike my past captures…
Anyway I don’t need any more bees but due to the placidness (yeah I can make up words) I’d like to keep these but have other colonys that need to make way for these.
Anyone need around here like to buy some bees? I know it’s swarm season and bees are there are plenty of colonys around at the moment for sale but if any Flowers, no not flowers, Flow’ers need some bees let me know.
