Swarm Catchers

A swarm is a cluster of honeybees surrounding a queen. The swarm is very rarely aggressive. They are only trying to protect their queen until they can find a new place to call home.

The following people have volunteered to collect swarms of honeybees.
Please be prepared to tell them where the swarm is located so they can determine if they have the proper equipment.
