ALBUQUERQUE BEEKEEPERS

Swarms

ABQ Beeks received 2 swarm calls on May 28th.  We are therefore extending this year’s swarm hotline a few more weeks.  We still need volunteers to take swarm calls and then pass the calls on to beekeepers on the swarm list.  Please consider signing up for the entire day if possible.  If you can’t sign up for the entire day, please sign up for the times that you are available. 

Below is the link to important instructions and a link to the volunteer list.
