If you are interested in collecting swarms – now is the time. I just got a call from Midstate pest control -(877) 526-4222 – looking for someone to collect a swarm for a customer of theirs – Midstate does not deal with honey bees apparently. I personally don’t usually have time to drop everything and go get swarms at this time of year, but you might. Midstate said that they get lots of these calls in the spring, and pass them on to anyone who contacts them with an interest in catching swarms. Other pest control companies probably have the same deal.
