Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
Joe Wesbrook and I removed bees from a sprinkler box in the NV this morning, and with Jessie Brown providing her usual cheerful narrative, channels 4 & 7 filmed the story for this evening's news. The homeowner wanted people to know how easy and satisfying it is to locate and work with a beekeeper in our city. I'm not sure when the story will air on KOAT, but It should be on KOB at 5 & 6 pm, and later on their website.
Way to go! Getting the word out there just as swarm season kicks in!

Thanks, Christopher. The reporter and camera people were very interested and asked good questions. If a beek has time to wait for a news crew to show up for a swarm capture, I'll bet they'd love to show one on the air.
