Are there any beekeepers in Bernalillo town who use top bar hives. I would like to start bee keeping and am planning on using top bars. I would like to have a better idea of what I am getting into before I launch out. Many thanks!!
Paul, did these swarms occur up and around the ABQ area? I just started seeing capped drone cells in my hive last week.
Thank you all for your great tips, I appreciate it.
We used teak oil on ours and it is still in great shape going into it's third year. Husband also says that tung oil would work too.
I use exterior white latex paint on my hives. I put two coats on. It seems to hold up very well in the NM Sun and weather.
what kind of paint should I use on my new hive?????
Our membership is under Rod's name, but I'm here, too!
We have a topbar which is doing OK with the little nectar here; it's improving since the rains. Our Langstroth we brought into town about 3 weeks ago to a friend's home with lots of flowers, etc. We checked on them this morning and it had been wiped out by what looks like wax moths. There were only about 50 bees left on the frames. We're quite sad about it, and we're learning a hard lesson. They were Russian Blues. This was our first year in beekeeping, but it won't be our last, of course.
