3/30/18 Hive Inspection

I placed a top bar hive in a friend's yard on Broadway a few weeks ago. At that time the hive was healthy with active Queen and several bars of brood. I've had reports of an active hive for those weeks. This morning I opened the hive at about 11Am and found 100+ dead bees at the back of the hive, low population of ~200 bees at Bars #5 & #6, no brood, 8+ combs of honey. No sign of a queen.

home owners insurance

I just learned from my Farmer's Insurance agent that if you purchase a home and intend to keep bees in your yard, most insurance companies will not cover you.

Cut-outs

Hi,

I am listed on the swarm removal page as doing cut outs, and that is not the case.  I only do trap outs.  How do I get the page updated?

Thanks,

Dennis

Ready to Start

Hey everyone. I'm now to the point where I am ready to start keeping bees. I intend to start out with Langstroth hives, but do not yet have a kit, boxes or frames. Anyone wanting to offload any? Or where do you suggest purchasing them from? Amazon? I guess I would prefer someone local though, as long as they're not much more expensive. I became a member to abqbeeks as of yesterday, and will be attending the mentoring event this weekend. 505-845-9286, or after work hours at…
