We have provided a list of our members that are available for collecting bee swarms in different areas of New Mexico.  Give a beekeeper a call as soon as possible!   

What is a Swarm?

A swarm is formed when a queen bee leaves the original colony with a large group of worker bees, usually in the spring and early summer, but can occur through fall. Swarming is a natural form of reproduction for honey bees. The bees can stay in the cluster for a few minutes to a few days, so call a beekeeper quickly!
