Thanks Rob. I would love to visit soon so I can learn what I need to do to prepare for this new hobby. I'm pretty excited. I have no supplies, so I will need to start working on that.

Hi Rob, that was a quick reply. I don't know the Duffys personally but have heard the name. As for the Mimbres, were you looking for someone that has bees out there or a place to keep bees? I have requested you as friend so I can email direct instead of posting comments. Again, if you do get a chance to make it out this way give us a heads up. If not soon maybe we can visit at the Conference in October. Stay well and bee safe.

Thanks, Rob, for your invitation to join the apitherapy group.  It might be a while before I include a picture and write a profile, but I am happy to take questions about bee venom therapy from other beekeepers.  I am not on Facebook or on line much but will try to check the comment wall frequently now that I  have access to it.     Have a safe 4th.

Hi all,

     Just got a call from NM  Game & Fish. The person delivering the fences, Gerry, has a family emergency  and will not be delivering the fences this week . We have tentatively  rescheduled for May 29th in Ruidoso and May 30th in Cloudcroft.     Hope the  bears find other attractions until then...

Hi Rob! There's a small group of folks in the Silver City area who are looking to establish several home-based A. m. ligustica hives this spring/summer. We've been waiting on package bees we ordered by mail but were just informed by the supplier that they just had several shipments tragically cooked (killed) by UPS and will not be shipping any more soon. I have family in High Rolls and now we are wondering if anyone in the area can sell us a few packages or nucs of bees? A couple of us can drive out and get them whenever is convenient. We will be using reclaimed Langstroth hives from the Mimbres. Hoping to hear from you soon! Thanks very much.

Thanks for the feedback on the bees that you got from me.  It is always good to hear about them.  You can order them on line at .html starting in 1st of November.  I ordered 400 last year and sold out.  I will probably do the same this year of might try to bump it up to 500.  I will keep you posted.  Please keep in touch and let me know how the bees are doing and if you have any questions please contact me.

Hi, Ron and everyone,

My Honeybee Genetic bees are doing well. They have found a way to access the neighbor's hummingbird feeders. I thank them everytime I see them for feeding my bees! There will be about 20 bees on each "bloom" of the feeder at a time and more waiting.

On the other hand, how can we keep the bees out of the feeders? We have lots of bloom which the bees are also visiting. It is all a joke right now but may not be in the future if it continues.

Another problem is that the lady disolves the  hummingbird feed in boiling water. I had understood that that was a bad practice for bees.

I have an Italian queen and she as well as the rest of the hive, is very gentle.I see from the posts that many of you have chosen Carnolian queens. What are the advantages of each> Does anyone know?

We are all fine here in the high desert and enjoying the summer. The kids are active and busy with many activities, guitar playing, biking and all that healthy country stuff. No TV which was a shock to them at first. Several of you had asked about my family and I thank you for that

Thank you for the welcome.  My husband just took a class from Les Crowder and is busy building his topbar hives.  Thought I would follow along with this part of his "farming".  He farms in Il yet, until he comes out here full time.  I am here now.
