How to Report a Bee Swarm in Albuquerque

The following people collect honey bee swarms in the Albuquerque area or know how to quickly find a nearby beekeeper. A phone call is the best way to get the beekeeper there quickly before the swarm departs. Keep in mind that most beekeepers on this list will travel further than the areas they are listed in, so if you don't get a response from beekeepers in one area of town, keep on calling down the list. 

Please call ASAP.

Question: Is the swarm dangerous?

No. Honey bees in a swarm are unlikely to be aggressive and sting anyone unless you attack the bees. At this stage they do not have a home to defend and they have filled up with honey in preparation for the flight to their permanent home. 

Please ask the beekeeper whether there is a charge for their time, fuel, or assistance.

*If you'd like to contribute to the New Mexico Beekeepers Association's state certified beekeeping program by reporting a swarm, please contact TJ Carr at 505-263-3025.  He will go anywhere East of the Rio Grande.  These bees will be used for teaching students in the program
