Albuquerque Beekeepers

Urban beekeeping in New Mexico's largest city.


     Today, I was passed the phone number for a gentleman with a swarm in his yard.  730-1774.  It's in the Lomas & Constitution area.  It flew into his yard yesterday afternoon/early evening.  I was over there about 12:45 PM today, Saturday.
     The swarm is mid-sized, I think.  It's 25-30 feet up a pine tree, about 5-6 feet out along a branch.  You'll need a 30 foot ladder, I think, and a bee vac would be much safer over trying to cut the branch at that point, which is thick enough to need loppers.  I don't have the ladder (he thinks he can get one, perhaps), or the bee vac.  I said I'd pass.
      Any takers?

Is the swarm gone?
