My wife Lorie and I are registered for your beekeeping class in Edgewood on the 28th, but there is a compost conflict, so only one of us could come to your class. Do you have any other upcoming classes in ABQ/RR/Edgewood that we could both attend?
Oh no problem. I am sure you have been busy. The bees are doing great! I already have 6-8 full combs in my top bar filled. I did have a couple questions. First, when can I stop giving them the sugar water? They seem really thirsty still and will drink about 800ml of the 1:4 solution in under a day. Second, should I go into by hive and place a blank bar between the already filled ones?
I was contacting you to find out more about the bees you are distributing. The link you provide answers the questions I had. When are you looking to have orders in?
I signed up early on the swarm list and am generally available at a call's notice so a swarm-populating strategy seemed good - but the prospect of going a year without bees if I am not hooked up with a swarm is giving me second thoughts...
I am looking for a mentor but I'm in ABQ - sounds like you may be out of town?
