Hi, I live in Los Chavez and am a first year beekeeper.   I am interested in learning more about challenges about beekeeping in this area and beekeeping in general.

Hello!  I’m new to beekeeping but dedicated to establishing a healthy hive!  It’s been an uphill challenge so far.  I’ve lost two queens, but the third took.  I now have larvae and there is hope that my hive will make it!  I’d love to connect with others in Valencia county.  If you’re going to the monthly meetings, maybe we could carpool.  It’s a 35 min. Drive for me and would gladly take others.  I’m in Los Lunas, north of the bridge over the river.

Elizabeth Lake please repost the picture of the bee in Bosque Farms, I inadvertantly deleted it, opps, anyway I think the picture represents a member of the Colletidae family perhaps; Caupolicana yarrowi, members of this family are collectively referred to by their common name as Plasterer bees, because they "plaster" the inside of their habitat (hole in ground) to waterproof it.

We sure needed the moisture, alfalfa is blooming, saw some white clover that really looked healthy by Los Lunas. Darn most all the Alfalfa pastures immediatly around me were rotated into grass this year.
