Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.
A few days ago A friend who keeps bees in the South Valley next to the drain ditch West of the river confronted two Rio Grande Conservancy employees spraying the vegetation along the ditch. They told him they were spaying herbicide but refused to say what kind. He made them leave, but we all need to be aware that spraying is happening all along the ditches right now while many plants are in bloom along the river. Please spread this information and call the Conservancy district to request that they stop.
