Swarm Survey

9 people have already taken the Swarm Survey without taking the Beekeeping Practices Survey.  REMEMBER, if you do not take the Beekeeping Practices Survey, you WILL NOT be added to the swarm list.

The 2019 Swarm Survey has been sent out.  You should have received this email:  

Beekeepers,

It's that time of year! Included in this email are links to our Beekeeping Practices Survey and the Swarm List Survey. BOTH of these surveys must be completed if you'd like to be added to this years 2019 Swarm List.

The Bee Removal list on the abqbeeks.org website is for trap outs and cut outs ONLY, and you must fill out the Bee Removal Survey to be included on this list. We want to keep everything up to date, and fair. Also, please fill our Mentor surveys if you'd like to have a mentor, or would like to become one. These lists are created each year, so these surveys must be filled out again if you'd like to give or receive mentorship once again.

Surveys are due on March 20th at 11:59 p.m. NO EXCEPTIONS.

We receive numerous messages via email, phone, text, abqbeeks.org, Facebook, Facebook messenger, etc. with beekeepers wanting to be added to the swarm list. Please realize that it is very difficult for us to keep track of all of this information. By filling out these surveys we are able to streamline this information and keep it organized. This is why you MUST fill out the Beekeeping Practices Survey and the Swarm Survey to be added to the Swarm List.

With gratitude,
ABQ Beeks

Questions Regarding Survey 11 Replies

Responding to your email about the lack of '0' option for hives surviving the winter.  My one hive in 87108 did not survive.Also, question #14 did not give the option of '0' either.  I forget the topic ,but I think it had to do with treatment.Continue
