Can anyone help? My car was broken into last night and they took my beekeeping gear. I have been getting so many swarm calls, that I just take my stuff with me wherever I go. I need a new smoker and a top bar hive tool. I know I can order those things online, but I was hoping to get into my nob hill bee yard on Wednesday. even express shipping is not that quick! Or if anyone mysteriously sees beekeeping gear for sale at a flea market...do not trust a thief!See More

Lara,

I'm on Lopez near Goff and Arenal/Isleta. Not sure about Silver Hill. Got my bees last fall. 1 top bar hive. Building a new one in case they decide to spilt this spring. Just starting out so hopefully things go well.

I'm hoping to head down to Lynn's house Wednesday afternoon. The high is supposed to be around 50, so the bees shouldn't bee flying, which should make the job easier. A friend has the day off and doesn't mind helping me, so that should work out well too. He's also a carpenter, so if we run into any challenges, his abilities will come in handy.

Hope all's well with you, the family, and the bees!
