    Creative, healthy bees (Quoting Ceebs) making a hive outside the swarm box. I’d like to move them from Venice to spot in Pacific Palisades, but don’t know how to do this. Swarm arrived May 17th. Hello? Anyone out there? Suzanne Roberts, 310 822 9696.

    Hi Suzanne,
    Just a little confused by your post.

    A mentor is a teacher who coaches someone, usually on-on-one, and provides ongoing advice and counsel in a given craft or area of knowledge that the “mentee” or apprentice, wants to learn.

    However it sounds like you are looking for
    1) a hive host to provide a location where your bees may be kept
    2) someone who will move the hive to the site

    Are you also looking to learn beekeeping, or rather are you looking for someone to provide maintenance for the hive without your participation?

    In addition, please clarify what you mean by the statement that the bees are making a hive outside the swarm box? Are they building comb outside the box? On the box? On a tree??? The description sounds unlike anything I have ever seen! Maybe you could post a photo of this very unusual sounding situation!

    Thank you for making a request for assistance, it just isn’t clear what you need.
