Have a Swarm? Need a Swarm!

Do you have a swarm that you caught that you can't home? 

You may place a post in this forum to advertise your swarm. We love ABQ Beeks who choose to give extra swarms to new beekeepers in our community, or to those who lost hives over the winter. However, you may place a notice that you have a swarm to sell. 

Do you need a swarm?

  • HI Everyone!

    I heard that abqbeeks is catching swarms and I need a swarm. I have a vertical hive, and I am sure that I have no clue what I am doing, but I would like a swarm. Am I ready for a swarm? I don't know, but I want to get going on keeping bees here.


    Let me know if you want to help a gal out!



  • Can someone provide info about the number of swarm calls that have been received, and any other stats (e.g., areas, of town times of day...)?  Thanks!



  • Would love a swarm....our package didn't make it. Thanks!

  • Help!  I need a swarm if at all possible.  I ordered a bee package online from Tractor Supply and they arrived today all dead!  I'm heartbroken.  I still want to get going this season but everything is stacking against me.

  • I've been hoping to catch a swarm but have not seen nor heard of any so far. I have a hive ready for one if anyone needs a place for one. 

    I'm in the the South Valley, phone number 505-681-2536.

    Thanks, Jens

  • Hello Fellow Beekeepers! Looking for a swarm if you find one please let me know!  I'm in the Corrales area.  My cell is 505-321-7571

    • Update.. I got a very small swarm.. Potentially have an upmated queen willing to swap for another swarm.  The queen is really small so I am not 100% sure.
