Hi everyone,

I am a newbie to the forum and have enjoyed reading through the posts over the past week.

I have noticed that members sell bees, hives etc through the forum and wondered what the procedure was.

I import and sell honey bee swarm lures and would like to know whether I am able to place a post promoting these - having found the forum very interesting I don't want to breach any rules and end up banned.

I look forward to your replies.

The forum is quite liberal, so provided you follow the "play nice" rule you are free to post commercial links / plugs.

Go for it! Of course, your customers are also free to post their honest assessments of your wares provided they play nice too. Just like a real community :cheers2:

Hi Bhoy,


Tell us more about your lures..
or better still, why not get some feed-back from a test pannel of forum members who can try one of your lures (for free) to see how good they are:cheers2:

Thing is though (as I am sure you are aware!) you have missed the main swarm period for 2009!

Swarm lures for sale

Very many thanks for the replies - they are much appreciated and very helpful, I will possibly make a specific post to advertise them and make a fixed donation to the forum for each / any sale to forum members or through the forum. (just mention the forum in any email etc)

I have included copies of the instruction /info sheets to this post which should answer many of the questions members may have, I also understand that feedback can be bad as well as good as is the case with any product and is not a personal attack. (shouldn't have any worries with this as I have many happy customers)

The prices for these lures are....

Single lure - including UK shipping - is £4.75 (25p will go to forum)
Twin pack - including UK shipping - is £6.75 (35p will go to forum)

Happy to take cheques, postal orders and paypal - whichever is easiest for you and goods shipped when received.

Hi,

I am happy to forward six lures for trial by forum members - on one condition - each recipient donates a minimum of 25p to the forum fund:) - I will cover postage cost.

Yes, I am aware the main swarm season is on the wane, but as many beeks will also know, we have a seen an increase in late swarms - especially in the south - over the last few years (global warming or forced evolution within the man managed colony?):confused:


Very best,

thebhoy

That's very generous of you thebhoy - you have a private message :)

Looking at the datasheet you posted, they look like the swarm lures that Thornes sell (at $6.46 per pair [1]). Is there any difference?


[1] Of course, with your 'built-in' forum contribution it makes the prices equivalent.

Thanks for the reply GTB,

I will go to my PM next.

The Thornes price is £5.62 + 84 vat + £1.60 postage which = £8.06 per pack of two.
My price is £6.75 per pack of two including shipping which is a saving of £1.31against Thornes price.

Shipping is usually done the day after payment is received and is with my customers the next day - normally.

I also sell these on Ebay and members are more than welcome to check my feedback etc - Google - Jarnn Fishing and then go to the ebay shop.

Best wishes,

Thebhoy
