Opened my hives today, and found that one is very active and replete with honey, bees, pollen -- but no brood, and no queen spotted.  Are there any queens to be had in the area?  Call or text me at 505-553-9445.  Thanks!Cheers,Zig

I got a call about some bees in the NW portion of Abq.  Based on the brief description, sounds like they are holed up in a shed.  Call 505-220-3730 (Francie?) to get details and make arrangements.  Good luck!Cheers,Zig

"They were on a lower fender, so I simply brushed them into a box, hoping the queen was part of the group and the rest of the gang would hang out with her.  After 30 minutes (and a few more rounds of brushing), there was a sizable collection of bees…"
