"Going to get windy- what are the group's thoughts on our windy climate and it's effect on bees?  I *suspect* (can't give any hard data) that we see a decrease in honey production due to the winds, and I also strongly suspect we…"

"Kenneth-sure.  I'd want to know how much of the hive box they've drawn out with comb and filled with brood and honey.  Have a deep and/or super on hand in case the hive is full.  Ideally, you want to pull some of the frames…"

"Just FYI for everyone doing cutouts: get the property owner to sign a hold-harmless release.  It only takes a moment, and you have it on paper that they were advised of damage, potential for bees stinging, etc.  I have one somewhere if…"

"You guys may not have drones up in the hills, but I've got drones galore down here.  I've already split to open up the brood nest.  It's raining right now (oh thank the rain gods!) and hopefully that will really help…"

"Kenneth- Mann Lake often has free shipping on orders over $100.  I won't hardly order from any places that charges shipping- the prices are just too outrageous.  Also, check Amazon.com.  They have a surprising variety of bee…"

"My son is doing a bee science fair project (plotting bee activity vs temperatures throughout the day) and we noticed a nice orientations flight today.  My son said he saw "big bees", so we might already have drones here at…"

"Checked my hives- both of them doing very well.  Surprised me a bit, as I doubted they would make it through winter.  Put some honey and Ultrabee on them."

"Does anyone have any excess wax laying around?  Coworker of mine is looking for wax for candles, not a large amount."

James H DAWDY commented on Rob Shepler's group Southern New Mexico Beekeepers
"Same here Rob. I'm trying not to feed the bees too much, and when I do I am trying to use honey as much as possible (i.e. not much).  I'm in agreement with the less-is-more, and let-Darwin-do-his-thing crowd.  On the other hand,…"

"Last I checked was around the 15th, and they were still OK.  Fed some syrup since it was warm.  Wont be home until Feb 1.  Fully expect they will starve out.  Still puzzled as to why they never built up appreciable stores for…"

"Two of my hives are a bit light on bees also.  I'm thinking I will do a newspaper combine tomorrow- they should (theoretically) be able to more efficiently gather in some of the fall nectar flow, as well as warm the brood nest.  One…"

"Fed syrup today- one of my hives was about as hot as I've ever seen it.  They headbutted and followed me around a bit, but I didn't get stung on my gloveless hands (I worked fast though!).  Looking at my records from last year,…"

The New Mexico Beekeepers also have a group on Facebook.   2 hives doing great, 1 doing ok, the last one (2 very small swarms I captured this year), I just combined into one small super.  Spotty brood, one full frame both sides of honey, and raising a supercedure queen.  How are yours doing?  My addy is dianawilson918@gmail.com, or you can find me on FB Anglswngs69/Diana Wilson

Wow, someone else from Deming YIPPPEE!   My bees are hanging in, 3 hives doing ok, one is just hanging in there, and lost a weak one to wax moths.  They are really liking my watermelon plants right now.  We'll have to get together.  I'm a newbie at this, so still making lots of mistakes.
