Traditionally members of the public, homeowners etc will see a swarm and not know what to do or who to call. Assuming that pest control will cost a load of money they will typically watch the swarm for a few days and hope that it goes away. If the bees remain there then they will call the council or pest control who will then tell them to contact a beekeeper. Perhaps not knowing any beekeepers the reporter will then google a bee society and find out where their nearest society is and report it to them. The society will then communicate out to the members, in their area, when they can possibly a day later and a beekeeper will attend..... The outcome is that very often the bees will have moved into a roof and are no longer an easy pickup.
This app aims to counter this by providing:
Single unified reporting mechanism for the entire UK.
Instant notification to the beekeepers.
Information to help reporters to report the correct swarms in the correct place.
The ability to subscribe to each postcode area that the beekeeper desires regardless of the specific areas covered by each of the beekeeping societies.
Less spam as people getting the messages only get the ones they have asked for.
Chance to update the job so that beekeepers are not wasting time picking up swarms that have either left or have already been picked up.
Easy management for the beekeeper associations in their areas.
All functionality of the app is available on the website platform at beeswarm.uk
