Dave and myself have been inundated with calls since we both registered as swarm collectors. He now has all three of his TBHs filled, with another in one of his bait hives (destined for Shane's Island). I have a swarm to collect tonight from Branston (hopefully going to Pete in Belper) and another bumble bee nest to remove from a loft space in Chaddesden. Just to keep us on our toes, this Saturday we are intending to remove an established colony from a large chimney pot being used as a garden ornament. This will be very involved, cutting-out and fixing a lot of comb to bars, and will take a few hours hard work; if all goes well they will be moved into my new TBH.
And it's only Tuesday!
If you are wanting bees for a TBH get in touch. If you haven't got aTBH hive get making one.
