Hi All,
I work at The Wildlife Center in Espanola and are awaiting the influx of orphaned songbirds that will start arriving in the next week or so.  We often need bee larvae to feed many of the nestlings, especially those that are insect eaters. Would anyone be willing to donate some bee larvae?  I'm just getting started as a bee keeper and don't even have my bees yet.  I'm not sure about the best way to extract the larvae, I guess just cutting a section of comb out?  It can then be frozen and then we can arrange a pickup/meeting place?  We need the equivalent of a cup or two.
Thanks for any help you can provide!
