Hi Admin

I think it was talked about before, but I can not see a section on it now.

Would it be possible to have a section where forum members can list their availability for swarm catching so the general public can view that section and contact said member?

Listing simply your location and or area covered in the title, but lock the thread so it does not become a discussion.

Or something along those lines?

Good plan.

I have notified my local Parish Council that I am available.

Also the relevant local councils and police.

It looks like a few members want it this time so I am happy to arrange something.

I might write a database that members can add their name location and other details to.

Pete very sorry to hear its your son thats not well.
I thought it was you out of remission,I new you dont like a fuss so never contacted you.

============================================================

If we dont want a database can someone tell me what sort of thing is needed.

Something that is open to public view and can be browsed easy.

Any ideas how it will be done thread wise ?

Lets get this up and running..

I don’t understand what you mean by the database, but my thought was is you simply created a section called "swarm catcher details" (or similar).

People then list the title as their area or location, and then a breif details in the main section, i.e times available or distance to travel, or what you would charge (be that £50 or a cup of tea!)

Then once they have posted it is locked.


So as an Example for me

Title

East Yorkshire, Selby, Market Weighton, Pocklington and Beverley Area

Main Section

I will travel up to 30 Mins from my home location of XXXX, to cover the areas as above.

I am only available after 5pm Monday to Friday, and Weekends

No charge for collection of swarm of Honey Bees

Mobile Number is 0800 69 69 69



Unless the list gets very big, it would not take long to scroll down and see the titles that clearly show only location.

Or people could use the search facility.

But these are just my views, the more the best it will be.

But then too many cooks can spoil the broth


PS Pete All the best to you and the Family an especialy your Son

This is a great idea. We could make it even better if we had a link showing pictures of different types of bee..ie. this is a bumble bee, or even this is a rare bumble bee that has recently moved into Britain and this is a honey bee, and this is what a wasps' nest looks like, and this is what a swarm looks like and this is what a colony that has made a home in a tree looks like (showing combs).

We could contribute some pictures. The pictures might reduce risk of wild goose chases.
