Just curious, has anyone actually got any successful calls from people through the swarm/bee removal map?

I  have received a couple calls from it but they were both over 200 miles from me. Tried to find someone in their area for them but had no luck.

Craigslist is great for getting swarm calls.  It's probably one of the best sources... that and police/fire departments.

How do you list it on craigs list.

Under which category.

I'm under for sale, farm and garden??  home and garden??  something like that.
Then I title the add free bee swarm removal,   (clinton area) 

then you show up under most general searches.  I'm sure it probally should be listed under services, technically, but you wouldn't show up for most searchers.

I am listed on several online resources. I am not sure if any of the callers used this site, but I have gotten all but one call from online searches.

I also get a lot of calls from people who have no idea what a honey be is. Others are from great distances and cannot fine anyone local for removals.
Lots of false alarms! Like..."I seen bees in the flowers in my garden, can you get them out of there??" Or, 'there are honey bees in a big paper nest under the gutter of my house!'

Tons of calls about 'bumbles' and one call about big black and yellow/orange butterflies bothering cold drinks at their pool!  :roll: You know that you have to watch out for those drink stealing buttflies!

I just got one from a referal, President of the Loudon County beeks and from craigs list.

It is going to be a cut out on a 3 seasons porch, what ever that is. She said it was about 2 feet off of the ground and she would have her friend put the boards back on the house, can't beat that. Been there three weeks, and did not want the exterminators to kill them out. We will see later this afternoon.

Don't forget Pest Control Companies....

The pest control companies are the best.

I had some business cards made for "bee removal" and hand them out to every pest control guy I see. Once you are on their list AND respond AND have happy satisfied customers, the calls will keep coming. Biggest thing I hear is "we called a couple of other beekeepers but they never answered the phone", after asking these keeps about it their reply is always "did not recognize the number so I don't answer".

Not bragging but did almost $10K in cut out and trap outs last year.  :cool:

Congratulations on your cutout success! One season was plenty for me as I was using cutouts for an avenue to obtain bees.... I will still do one occasionally.

Pest Control was my best experience also G3. I went to fire stations, police departments, even the 911 folks. But Pest Control Companies were the folks that got the results.

I get most of my calls from the Jacksonville bee club website. Lots of them. I do get a few from local pest control companies.
