Oh no problem. I am sure you have been busy.  The bees are doing great! I already have 6-8 full combs in my top bar filled. I did have a couple questions. First, when can I stop giving them the sugar water? They seem really thirsty still and will drink about 800ml of the 1:4 solution in under a day. Second, should I go into by hive and place a blank bar between the already filled ones?

Thank you,

  The sat event was great. I always learn something new at each event.

As per our discussion about asking you to be my mentor, I would greatly appreciate

it if you could do that for me. I am available for any work,  training, etc. for bee

knowledge advancement.  I am a quick study and I absorb info like a sponge

soaks up water ( not bragging), but I do listen. Someone once said, "better to

keep mouth shut and have everyone think thee a fool, than to open mouth and

remove all doubt!!"  Now how's that for wisdom?!!! You can e mail me or call

on the phone.............Charlie................

Hey Craig,

We are selling bee boxes and frames at my Mom's house just down the road from you next Saturday (August 30, 2014). We will have boxes and frames available as long as they last.

I've checked the website but didn't see anyway to order a queen. Are there any left?

Hi Craig, I heard you might have some queens for sale. If so, I think I need one.

No problem.

Craig thanks for the offer to help. I have a question for you regarding feeding. I haven't pulled off my feeder yet because I'm concerned there isn't enough nectar in Edgewood to really sustain them yet. I've just now started to see a few blossoms. What is your opinion?

I was contacting you to find out more about the bees you are distributing. The link you provide answers the questions I had. When are you looking to have orders in?


I signed up early on the swarm list and am generally available at a call's notice so a swarm-populating strategy seemed good - but the prospect of going a year without bees if I am not hooked up with a swarm is giving me second thoughts...


I am looking for a mentor but I'm in ABQ - sounds like you may be out of town?

Hi Craig,


I just ordered one package of bees from your website. My mom and I are just beginning and we feel one packages was enough. What do you think? We live in Placitas, near the village, with neighbors that have fruit trees and gardens. There is also Las Huertas Creek running through the property.


We look forward to hearing from you,


Tracy LaValle
