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.

Thanks Chantal, yep, my co worker Eric got me into it. Plus it helps my orchards.

Great write up on you and local beekeeping in Alibi! "How do you decide to overturn the leadership in Egypt?"

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?

Chantal; Thanks for organizing today's event. It was very helpful and enjoyed meeting folks. It also answered many questions I had about TBHs. I just viewed your video on installing package bees in a TBH. I wish I had seen it a couple years ago.
I have joined the swarm-catchers group and hope to get a call sometime. I have captured swarms in the past and hope to get at least one this year to start my TBH.
I have quite a bit of Langstroth equipment, including a hand-cranked extractor. I will be putting it all up for sale and focus on TBHs.
Thanks again, Jens

Phew, I'm relieved to hear that my ladies'll have adequate forage. In that case, I had better get a move on finishing my TBH! Thanks for the advice about watering.

Hi Chantal! Yeah, I live in the Fair West neighborhood, west of the fairgrounds. (hmm, I guess the name says that...) :)

I actually have never had bees, but I am definitely going to in the near-as-possible future. How has your luck been with bees in this area? I feel like my neighborhood isn't very green, and worry that not enough forage is available throughout the year. Any thoughts on the subject, or suggestions on what to plant for them?

Hopefully we can collaborate... maybe turn our area into a bee-belt?!? Haha, I know that is probably not the most feasible dream :)

See you at the Hays Farm seminar!
