Bee Swarm Season Has Arrived

Our esteemed Secretary and swarm Wrangler, Geoff Henning advised that Maris Cummins reported via her friend in Newcastle that there was a swarm in Carrs Park Sydney which was duly collected by Bruce Angus on 23 August 2017. Expect to see plenty more swarms in the coming weeks and if you'd like to collect a bee swarm, make sure to contact Geoff at one of our meetings or via our website contact us page by clicking the bee icon above.
