hi, you are here - we are here.. all this thanks to a humble insect called the honey bee.

through its pollination it enables flowers to create seeds for the evolution of life, fruit, nuts and vegetables for sustenance. only 15% of food is pollinated by wind, if bees perish the dinner table would become dull and repetitive - void of sustenance.

realising this a group of passionate students have approached an expert apiculturalist (who is now 81!) having spent all his life in this subject and undergone various scholarships around the world - there could not be a better person to approach to help combat the steady decline of bees.

we identified a crucial aspect of the bee's lifecycle, namely reproduction - (where the colony produces a new swarm for it's propagation). in an ideal world scenario this new colony would settle under a tree, in a cave or so forth - however in this excessively 'developed' world most of these swarms are trapped in urban environments, mostly at the mercy of pest controllers. this is were we come in:

Through contacting local government agencies, we informed that we will voluntarily rescue these swarms. Since our services are free, this will help that the public (mostly scared of bees) will call us instead of a pest controller. When a call comes, we abandon anything at hand to rescue such swarms, as time is always of the essence in such cases. Once the swarm is rescued, it is passed through a 14 day quarantine to screen and treat for possible diseases, then housed in the wild for nature to take its course.

It is important to note that we are not asking for help to start this mission, we have already engaged in swarm rescue for the past four years. Through time, we learned alot, perfected techniques and rescued over a hundred swarms (ie millions of bees). When we are strong enough, we will make an intro video to further describe our work - and also achieve our dream. To formulate the perfect blueprint for swarm capture, treatment and release - so this procedure will be documented and applied worldwide. We believe this will have a strong long lasting effect for bee preservation, protection and propagation.

Thanks for landing here, your assistance ensures a continuation of our important work.
