Chantal, I'm new to in 87108 near Bullhead Park.  I built a top bar hive using the Carr & Bradford plans.  Now I understand I need to get on a list NLT January to buy a starter nuc.  Any suggestions?  Thanks, Rod

Hi Chantal, I live in your neighborhood and am a top bar beekeeper. I started this past spring and have some questions about winter hives.  Seems I have quite a few bees lying dead around my door every day.  Is that normal?  Thanks!  Anita

Let me know the best way to help you put a flyer together for the 311 operaters in Albq. about handeling bee swarms.

Good job on the class last night.  The response by the number of attendees was staggering.  I think you might need a bigger room for the next meeting.  How about the one at the south end of the building?  Is it bigger and as accommodating?

I put it on hold, my Godchildren will be here at Thanksgiving...I was wondering should I go ahead and pull the super off the hive?

The honey is really light in color and really aromatic- tastes like sunshine to me!

Thank you! I have a beginners kit. Now I'm hoping to get in on some swarm catching. I have looked on line for packaged bees but they seemed to be all sold out. Any ideas?
