Albuquerque Beekeepers

Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.


Beeks in 87106

Are their other beekeepers in the neighborhood?  I live in the Silver Hill area.  It'd be great to learn of other beeks out there, as i am completely new to this.

Help/Mentor Needed - My friend and I started seven hives in the 87106 zip code this year.  Five of the hives are built the same with the middle cleats and have been showing great success with their cones, honey, etc.  Very clean inspections and maintenance.  Two were built a bit differently and have unfortunately allowed the bees to build across 2-3+ bars.  We have been looking at options to cut and reattach the cones; however, we are a bit apprehensive after a disaster with the first one.  Is someone available and experienced enough to assist?

Anyone have an empty hive ready for a swarm?

I am a first year beekeeper with two top bar hives.  One was a package and one a swarm.  They seem to be doing fine, I will open them again the end of the week.  My wife Robin and I live at San Rafael and Richmond SE.

Hi all, I'm a former 87108 beekeeper but now joining your ranks. We have a topbar hive and live Santa Clara and Princeton area. The colony is actually from this neighborhood; my prior colony didn't overwinter but a swarm set up shop in the empty hive in spring of last year.

Hello Tom, You are closer to my GPS/ GIS mapping/ survey consultant, where I am going once or twice a month, typically 14-16:00 Thus.  Also to my primary collaborator at Idylewilde & Monroe, with whom I have been building hives, etc, on a more intermittent basis.  Perhaps we each could swing by to visit one another on a convenient day.  Patrik 255-1933

I am at the corner of Richmond and San Rafael SE.  I am "retired" so am somewhat flexible time wise.  Tom

Hello all, I'll be happy to help, with some qualifications.  I must constrain my discretionary commitments to a 20 min walk or bike ride from Mountain & Girard.  Beyond that, I'll typically miss everything to which I can't arrange a ride and/ or take our toddler.   Perhaps we can create a map here showing the approximate locations, numbers, types, and practices for our hives.  Best, Patrik

Hi neighbors, Robin and I were up in Seattle for a short visit.  I missed the monthly meeting, we are trying to catch up, including planting our spring garden.  We have our first bees coming in a couple of weeks.  Mariel, I would be happy to help with your bees once I feel confident to do that.
