    It is unfortunate that there is no standard for top bar style hives right now. That might also be the beauty of top bar’s- that they are a tinkerer’s hive. You can make a top bar hive out of a metal locker laid on it’s side for goodness sake. I have had to do major surgery when transferring comb from the Crowder style hive to a much skinnier and deeper Bush hive. I’ve also not been able to transfer bars from my Crowder style to the Gold Star hive because I couldn’t get to the cleat to cut it down. I don’t have a solution for this one because I like the simplicity of the Crowder hive and I like the beautiful engineering of the TJ hive.

    Quick question, do many people in Northern NM have experience with the TJ Carr hive? He’s a big educator in Albuquerque. You can find TJ and the Crowder hive plans here: http://www.nmbeekeepers.org/page/topbar-hive-plans

    Anyway, good to know about the second year mite issue. I haven’t had much experience with mites taking down a colony, but it could easily happen to me in the future.

    Here are the size differences on all three top bars in my yard:
    1: w: 19″ (top bar) d: 81/2″ from top bar to bottom of inside hive (eccoversity)?
    2: w: 21″ (top bar) d: 9″ ” ” ” ” ” ” ” ” (LW)?
    3: w: 141/4″ (“) D: 10″ ” ” “” entrance at end cap (????)
    And a note on this last one it is also quite a bit shorter every bar is full there is no room to manage and they constantly attach comb to the side wall due I am sure to the fact that the comb is shorter and longer putting stress on the attached top bar… I can only imagine when it warms up this summer that many will collapse into the hive, the bees in this box are very cranky……

    Robert just checked both hives and they still have plenty of room.  He moved the partition back a couple of bars in the BeeWeaver hive, just in case though.  Are you feeding yours, Rob?  We’ve not been feeding ours, so that may be why they aren’t exploding in population right now.

  6. I am not feeding, they are still working the horehound hard and making honey.

    I never thought I’d say this, but you are so lucky to have some much horehound!  The deer ate up our horehound.  Once we get our fence up, I’d like to encourage it and lambs ear.  They love lambs ear flowers!

  9. I have been shoveling thistle in the pasture this morning and the clover is starting to come on. Looks like we will have a continuous flow here, especially if we can get a bit of rain! Sure wish I had more bees

    Wow, clover AND thistle! You guys are rolling in it. We only have trace amounts of either of those down here in my area. We have the market cornered on Cottonwood and Willow, however.

    Sorry to hear you lost a couple of swarms Rob.  I returned from my trip last night.  This morning I had to check the new BeeWeaver colony you helped me install just 12 days ago.  I removed the now empty feed can.

    I was impressed by all the new comb.  I did not see the queen.  I did not notice larva but there was eggs and sealed cells.  The one old comb I gave them broke off during the installation.  I moved the broken off portion a couple of bars away and made two pencil like supports to hold it vertically under an empty bar.  The bees filled in the missing couple of inches of comb and reattached it to an empty bar.  In this photo, I inverted the old comb with the supports to work on them.  I managed to remove the pencil supports which are shown in the inset photo in the upper right.  The reattachment was not perfectly centered like the new combs but that was probably because of my misalignment.

    Overall, I am very impressed with their progress in only 12 days.  Many of the new comb appears to be nearly full hive depth but not yet full width.  My guess is they have completed at least the equivalent of 4 FULL NEW combs (maybe more).  I made sure they have plenty of empty bars to work on.

    No matter how much I have tried this year, it seems I cannot stop my bees from swarming. I had my newest bess, my cordovans, swarm on me today. I just checked them two days ago and only saw a single queen cell which I took for a supercedure cell so I left it. darn the luck!

    You cannot attract a queen-bee, but you can put some lemongrass oil on a cotton ball and place it in the hive and try to attract a swarm. Your best bet would be to buy some bees though. I might have some in Spring.

    Thanks Paul. if no luck with attracting a queen i will contact you in the spring.

    I am thinking of purchasing a top bar hive made of cedar and would like to know if cedar is a good wood to use.  Or is there someone in ABQ that makes and sales top bar hives?  I hope to start beekeeping next spring.

    Randy

  17. Hi Bob!

     

    I live up in Mayhill so I am semi close to you. Sounds like you want to get into beekeeping, there is a lot to know and I would love to help you if I can. A great place to start learning about bees is Michal Bush’s website http://www.bushfarms.com/bees.htm I really learned a lot from him. I am returning to bees after a 30 year absence.

     

    Did you build a top bar hive?

     

    I have read where people have had good luck with a bait hive, Paul’s idea of the lemongrass oil is a good one. The key with a bait hive seems to be the height, it needs to be about 15 feet in the air and have an over all volume of about 5 to 10 gallons. I am going to try a couple up here in the spring.

     

    We started a social network of us in the southern part of the state, if you go to the main page of the New Mexico Beekeepers Association and scroll to the bottom of the page you will find an area called “Groups”. In that section you will find a group called “Southern New Mexico Beekeepers” that’s us! Please join us, there are some really good folks down in this area and you could pick up a bit of knowledge from them.

     

    Glad to hear of your interest in bees, they are amazing creatures. Contact me any time you want to talk about bees.

    I emailed and never heard back!   I’m trying to avoid driving out to Lee Knight’s place, however his 3lb packages are about $70 a pop in quantities of 50 or more so it’s tempting since prices in this state are pretty insane.  Will you do quantity discounts?

  20. Profile photo of Megan Mahoney

    Hi Bob…

    sorry for delayed response.  I am in Jamaica at the moment.  I will not be able to beat that price.  $70 is pretty cheap!  Im charging $125/pckg….with no quantity discount.  You may want to contact Craig Noorlander and see what he says he is picking up more packages than I am.

    Rob, I just sent your letter to every commissioner and the mayor.  Good luck!

  22. Profile photo of Michele Chisholm

    My bees faired well so far.  I’ve been into the hives once to check on them and 2 out of the 3 hives had enough honey stores to last through the first nectar flow.  I started feeding the one hive which was low.  They all had some brood and larvae.  One of the hives had a weak queen last year so I’ll be requeening soon.  I’ve never re-queened before so any suggestions are welcome.

    Commissioner Sikes has already responded to my e-mail and she plans on attending your May 25th meeting.  She said in the meantime she’ll try to do something before the May meeting and to keep sending her information on this issue.

     

  23. Wow! Thank you Michele!

    I deal with the type of bee you are talking about all the time. Those sound a bit too ill tampered for my taste – especially for a 5 frame hive. I would expect that from a hive with 3 deeps, but that is a bit much, even for survivor bees, for a 5 frame hive. Most of the feral survivors in my area are not very defensive, just sort of runny. They can be defensive on a bad day, but normally not.

    I have only been stung in the gloves twice, and once on the suit in the last several years, and I have dealt with some rough little girls.

    What part of the state are you in?

  29. Profile photo of Paul McCarty

    It is very possible they are overcrowded as well.

  30. So, let me ask this question out of curiosity – where did you get these bees and from what elevation? There are a great many influences on our Feral NM bees and sometimes the bees you think are African really aren’t, but are just as defensive (and sometimes more so).

    That being said, the African influence is just a fact of life for us Southern NM beekeepers. One must adapt their methods to make it work. If you can breed out the bad hybrid traits, the feral bees are quite hardy and mite resistant, but it can be a lot of work. I have found it easier to get a known line of queens from within the state, and open mate them for survivor traits where the African is less predominant – normally at higher elevation.

    Hi Manda. Another factor in keeping defensive bees is if you live in an urban or country environment. I live in an urban setting and my rule of thumb is 3 strikes, you are out. There are many factors that can lead to a grumpy hive such as weather, a nighttime visitor by a predator, nectar dearth, etc that might make a calm hive aggressive. If I go out to a hive and get many bees buzzing and stinging through my veil, followed a large distance by defensive bees or stung unexpectedly many times on 3 separate instances, I usually requeen. Not only do I have to consider my own nerves, but the safety of neighbors in close contact to my yard. If you live in the country, you might decide to keep more aggressive bees. Some people actually like fiery bees because they are better at defending themselves from predators, etc.! 

  33. Profile photo of Paul McCarty

    Put it this way – I do lot’s of cut-outs and ALMOST NEVER get stung, especially in the gloves.Usually it is because I squish them. If you are just beginning – get a new queen before they get too strong and you can’t find her.

  34. Profile photo of Kevin Schwebel

    I’d have to agree with Jessie, being a semi-urban beekeeper.  Even if I can deal with the aggression, it’s not worth the risk to neighbors, passers-by, or my wife’s sanity.  She’s not at all comfortable with angry bees.  

    I had some like you describe last year. They would head-bang me and follow me all the way back to the house, but seldom stung…even when I was working without gloves. I grew some queens and requeened them anyway. I think they were that way because I’d let them get crowded. (4 deep. They swarmed once.) I was building up vs.  out because I didn’t want hives all over the property, but in retrospect it’s a bad idea. 

    Nature fixed my issue last fall, so with the new  girls I’m going to keep them in small colonies this time. So far so good.

  35. Profile photo of Paul McCarty

    Stinging the gloves and the suit is a non-starter for me. That queen would be gone.

    I’m sorry I wasn’t able to attend the meeting on the 24th. What were the final regulations for keeping a hive? (size of lot, number of hives, informing neighbors, registering)

    A. Apiary Registration. No person may own or maintain an apiary within the

    City without first registering all apiaries with the City. Registration shall be made

    in writing and upon such form or in such format as established by the City, and

    shall be accompanied by the prescribed registration fee in the amount

    established from time to time by resolution of the City Commission. Non-property

    owners that wish to own or maintain an apiary on property that the non-property

    owner is renting, or otherwise occupying with the permission of the property

    owner, must include written permission from the property owner or landlord that

    explicitly indicates that the non-property owner has permission to own or

    maintain an apiary on the subject property. Such written permission shall be

    supplied to the City as part of the apiary registration.

    B. Hive Type. No Beekeeper shall keep or maintain bees in any hive other than

    a modern movable frame hive which permits thorough examination of every

    comb.

    C. Fencing of Flyways. In each instance in which any colony is situated within

    25 feet of a public or private property line of the tract upon which the apiary is

    situated, as measured from the nearest point on the hive to the property line, the

    beekeeper shall establish and maintain a flyway barrier at least 6 feet in height

    consisting of a solid wall, fence, dense vegetation or combination thereof that is

    - 4 -

    parallel to the property line and extends 10 feet beyond the colony in each

    direction so that all bees are forced to fly at an elevation of at least 6 feet above

    ground level over the property lines in the vicinity of the apiary.

    D. Water. Each beekeeper shall ensure that a convenient source of water is

    available to the bees at all times during the year so that the bees will not

    congregate at swimming pools, bibcocks, pet watering bowls, bird baths or other

    water sources where they may cause human, bird or domestic pet contact.

    E. General Maintenance. Each beekeeper shall ensure that no bee comb or

    other materials that might encourage robbing are left upon the grounds of the

    apiary site. Upon their removal from the hive, all such materials shall promptly be

    disposed of in a sealed container or placed within a building or other bee-proof

    enclosure.

    F. Queens. All colonies shall be maintained with marked queens. In any instance

    in which a colony exhibits unusual aggressive characteristics by stinging or

    attempting to sting without due provocation or exhibits an unusual disposition

    toward swarming, it shall be the duty of the beekeeper to promptly re-queen the

    colony with another marked queen. Queens shall be selected from European

    stock bred for gentleness and nonswarming characteristics.

    G. Prohibitions. No Africanized bees may be kept on a property under the

    regulations of this Section.

    H. Marking Hives. The beekeeper shall conspicuously post a sign setting forth

    his name and telephone number.

    I. Application to Code Enforcement. Anyone proposing to keep bees on a

    property in the City of Alamogordo or to expand such use shall apply for approval

    from the Code Enforcement Department, which shall determine if the application

    is in compliance with regulations regarding permitted placement of beehives,

    flyway barriers, and other structures used in the keeping of bees and whether the

    property is occupied by a condemned building.

     (2) In Residential Districts. In Residential Districts, the following regulations shall apply.

    A. Notification Required. Any person proposing to keep an apiary on any

    property located in the City of Alamogordo, or to expand any such use, shall

    first provide, by mail or personal delivery, written notice to the owner of all

    adjoining lots or parcels of land prior to registering the apiary as required by

    section 7-01-020(c)(1)A of this Ordinance and shall certify the same to the

    City at the time of registration.

    - 5 -

    B. Colony Densities. It shall be unlawful to keep more than the following

    number of colonies on any tract within the city, based upon the size or

    configuration of the tract on which the apiary is situated:

    1. Less than 2,400 square feet in area – no colonies.

    2. One-quarter acre or less tract size – two colonies.

    3. More than one-quarter acre but less than one-half acre tract size – four

    colonies.

    4. More than one-half acre but less than 1 acre tract size – six colonies.

    5. One acre or larger tract size – eight colonies.

    5. Regardless of tract size, where all hives are situated at least 200 feet in

    any direction from all property lines of the tract on which the apiary is

    situated, there shall be no limit to the number of colonies.

    For each two colonies authorized under this section, Colony Densities there

    may be maintained upon the same tract one nucleus colony in a hive

    structure not exceeding one10-frame hive body with no supers attached as

    required from time to time for management of swarms. Each such nucleus

    colony shall be disposed of or combined with an authorized colony within 30

    days after the date is acquired.

    C. Location and Setbacks. No beehive shall be kept closer than five (5) feet

    to any lot line and ten (10) feet to a dwelling or the permitted placement of a

    dwelling on another parcel, and no beehive shall be kept in a required front

    yard or side street yard. The front of any beehive shall face away from the

    property line of the Residential property closest to the beehive.

    D. Lots Without a Primary Residence. Notwithstanding the provisions of

    Chapter 29 of the Alamogordo Code of Ordinance regarding accessory uses,

    bee keeping is a permitted accessory use and may be kept on a lot that is

    vacant or has no occupied residence.

    E. Written permission; revocation.

    1. Written permission required by section 7-01-020(c)(1)A is revoked

    under any of the following circumstances:

    i. The occupant who has given written permission gives up legal

    possession of the residence or property.

    ii. The owner of property who has given written permission transfers or

    is otherwise divested of all interest in the property.

    iii. The owner or occupant of property who has given written

    permission files a signed revocation of written permission with the

    Code Enforcement Department.

    - 6 -

    (3) In Non-Residential Districts. In zoning districts other than Residential Districts,

    all regulations applicable in Residential Districts shall apply except that the number

    of beehives shall be limited to one (1) for each 1,000 square feet of lot area unless

    the non-residentially zoned lot is located within 200 feet from any residentially zoned

    lot in which case the density restrictions for Residential Districts shall apply.

    (e) Variances. The Board of Appeals may vary the regulations of this section as they

    apply to a particular property if it determines that such variance will be consistent with

    the stated purpose of this Section.

    Hello Jeanne, there is plenty of room for this event. I can’t wait to see you there and catch up about bees.

    Sincerely,
