    I live in Pacific Palisades and have an empty hive that needs filling. I haven’t learned how to capture a swarm myself yet and was wondering if I could get one from someone local. How do I go about doing this?

    How you can “get” a swarm from someone else ?

    Do you mean “buy” a captured swarm, or “get one” for free and without having to go out and help capture the swarm ?

    Wouldn’t you rather learn how to capture a swarm and be a team mate in capturing a swarm ?

    And if you can buy bees for $150, isn’t the experience and learning how worth at least $150 ?

    Teach a man to fish vs give a man a fish ?


    I’m sorry if my post wasn’t clear (Michael). Of course I wasn’t looking for a hand out – I just had no idea how to go about this. Since the post, I’ve made contact with a generous beekeeper who is teaching me how to go about capturing/cutting out a swarm.

    Well so am I to now infer that I am not generous enough for you (Marie) ?

    I am though glad that you found a generous beekeeper, who is teaching you rather than giving you …..

    It’s all about the bees, and I hope that you are as generous to your beekeeper friend as he is to you.

    Live well and prosper.

    All is right in he univers.
