Hello John. If you do Facebook, do a search for Sacramento Mountains Beekeepers. Beeks from Otero County communicate there.
Personally, I have not been posting much because it is a very busy time of year. I only have time to read up on those posts being made, and not all of the time.

Will the topbar hive plans be added to this site? I was going to refer someone to them. Thanks!
Thought I should mention that it took two days for someone’s message to get to me through this site. Also, I replied but the message never was received. Hope this can be fixed.
