Mailbox Bee Swarm
Harsen Island, MI

SEMBA web site swarm reporting system is working well. On June 10, 2006, Roger Sutherland received a call from Eric Dietz on Harsen Island. Roger gave him the name of SEMBA member Carl Grobsorean, also of Harsen Island, who promptly picked up the swarm shown in the photos.

SEMBA has received many calls this spring as a result of this web-site. We need to have more beekeepers throughout the state to refer these reports. Calls are coming from Gaylord, Hillsdale, Midland, Holland to name a few. Send your name to Roger at
