Albuquerque Beekeepers

Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.

How do I use this site?

Welcome! This is a community site for beekeepers in Albuquerque (known as "ABQ Beeks"). 


Whether you're just getting started or you're a long-time beek, I hope you'll use this site to share information, find events, and connect with each other.


For new beekeepers + people curious about beekeeping:


Hang out. Ask questions in the forum. Consider attending a local event. Volunteer to help someone harvest honey or open their hives.


For experienced beekeepers:


This site needs your knowledge. Please consider signing up and answering questions posted by new beekeepers. Consider creating a special interest group like "Top Bar Beekeepers" or "Swarm Catchers." Post an announcement.


The beauty of a public site like this is that you won't have to answer the same question as many times and can just point new beeks to your previous posts ;-)


How to get started here:


To post questions, answers, and events, you'll need to create a (free) account. Just click Sign Up in the top right of the website.

Once you've done that and answered a few basic questions, you're ready to engage.


How to email people:


Did you know you can directly contact people via this site?


Using this system, you can send someone a message that is forwarded to their personal email address. NOTE: Your personal email address is not revealed to anyone but the site administrator (that's me).


To send someone an email, find their page on the list of members, and then click Send a Message.


How to check your messages


If you've received an email from someone, you can check your messages by logging in and then clicking Inbox at the top right.


How to get emailed about new discussions

What other questions can I answer about this site for you? I'm happy to help you get started.

Just FYI: the exact same thing happened to me a couple of weeks ago but I was too busy to email. Then a day or two later it fixed itself.

I logged on and was only seeing announcements from 2014 or so.  It was all old announcements down the right-hand side.  

I can now see all 2017 announcements, but it was a weird malfunction to have!

Hi Carolyn,

A few minutes ago it had old items, it is now showing current items, at first I thought it was my computer, so I checked it a couple of times. Thanks for your quick response.

Comment by Carolyn Hammack on August 8, 2016 at 9:08am

Hi Maureen,

because swarm season is primarily in the spring, swarm list admission is only open for a very short time in February and March. Keep an eye out for an email from ABQ Beeks at that time to add yourself.

How do I get on the swarm removal list?  I've looked and can't find any instructions.  Please text me at 505-379-2791,  Thanks.

On behalf of Mama's Minerals, I'd  like to invite one or more representatives of Albuquerque Beekeepers to Mama’s Minerals 11th Annual Arts & Crafts Fair on Saturday, August 27 from 10 AM – 4 PM. It is one of the largest arts & crafts fairs in the state, with over 100 artists selling exclusively handmade goods. Based on traffic counts from our previous fairs, we estimate that 2,000 people will visit and shop the fair this year.

 We’d like to offer Albuquerque Beekeepers one of our Community Rocks! booths, as a chance to promote your organization and reach out to the public. Your booth would be 10 ft x 10 ft, and there would be no charge to you as a Community Rocks! participant. You would, however, need to bring your own table, tent & tent weights, etc. We do have chairs for you to use if needed.

Booths are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you let me know you’re interested the better your chances of getting in! You may either respond to this email address or call Mama’s Minerals at 505-266-8443 and ask for Amanda. I work Monday-Thursday from 9 AM – 3:30 PM.

Thank you, and we sincerely hope that you are able to take advantage of this opportunity!

Lorene, you need to sign in and go to the forum you want to post your question or answer, then in the upper right hand side there will be a green + sign and the word ADD.  Click this and it will allow you to post your question or comment in that forum.  Im new at this and hope this helps.  Dan

Comment by Lorene Pyeatt on July 20, 2014 at 11:35am

I posted a message asking whether anyone has Queens for sale.  It shows up on my own page but how are others supposed to see it?

Comment by Raymond Espinoza on July 18, 2014 at 9:17pm

Hi Cathy,

Click settings, next to profile you will see the link to change your email address. See you in class.

Comment by Cathy Elliott on July 18, 2014 at 9:07pm

How do i change my email address? Or should i just re-register with my new address?  Thanks

Comment by Gordon C. Thomasson on March 21, 2013 at 9:49am

I feel (dumb?).  Can't figure out how to register myself to offer a bee home.

I'm on the page but though I'm signed-in it acts like a read-only site.
