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. I placed the dead bees in a jar for anyone who might be able to inspect…Continue

There is a lady in Corrales who wants to lease her land to a beekeeper. She says that there is a lot of Russian Sage on the land. You can call her at (505) 492-5869.

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.
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?

Are there any plans for another bee hive / garden tour for 2017 ?
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…Continue
I have several ripe queen cells from strong queens. I will put them into queen cages in my incubator but this will only last for a few days, at most. If interested, let me know right away! Thanks, Sarah Malone 306 8771

Congratulations to the UNM Wild Friends and all you bee supporters out there who flooded the Senate Conservation Committee's mailboxes on behalf of this well written bill. It passed unanimously with only one small amendment which strengthened it. Keep your fingers crossed! .
Here's what the…Continue

I'm on the swarm list and have been getting a lot of calls lately. Unfortunately, many of the calls I get are for cut outs. That's something that at this point I'm just not comfortable doing. I feel bad because I just don't have anyone that I can refer people to. If you are willing to do cut outs in the Abq. area please send me your name and number and I will refer you.

I volunteered to help with the Open Space mentoring event on 14 May as a top bar expert but never received confirmation. Am I on your list as a volunteer for the 14th?
I know very little about beekeeping, but think my property might be a good site for a hive. I would be willing to host a hive, if that is the proper term, in exchange for someone taking care of them. I have an 80 plant vineyard and some fruit trees on 3/4 of a acre. My neighbor has a fairly extensive orchard on over 2 acres.
I have 3 hives and this winter all 3 left me. Please help. Where near Albuquerque can i buy some NUCS. Please and thank you

Eco Friendly Phillips 66 Station in Cedar Crest
As a hobbyist beekeeper I am accustomed to fielding questions from friends and acquaintances about honey bees. I’ve urged hummingbird lovers to purchase bee proof feeders (available locally at Triangle Grocery in Cedar Crest), and reassured nervous mothers that children are unlikely to be stung by bees foraging among plants for pollen and nectar. I wasn’t prepared, however, for a telephone call received on…Continue
