The Bee Health app is based on current scientific knowledge to address honey bee diseases and pests. It is a handy resource to help beekeepers and other users to detect, diagnose, manage and treat honey bee diseases and pests. It includes pictures and treatment options which will aid beekeepers in adopting appropriate pest management practices. Thus, beekeepers can improve bee health and enhance on-farm food safety and biosecurity practices in their operations.

Max's Bees Part 1


This is a video about a Top Bar Hive that has turned aggressive.  It is moved to a remote location and the honey and brood removed and the hive prepared to be converted to a Langstroth Hive and given a new queen.


Max's Bees Part 2

This is a continution of Part 1.  We cannot find the queen so a queen excluder is attached to the bottom of the super, elevated and the bees shaken in front of the hive.  We are preparing it to receive a new queen.

Max's Bees 3 

This is a continution of Part 1 & 2.  We have prepared the hive it to receive a new queen.  A queen is not available so we have taken a frame of eggs and young larva from a 2012 Carniolan Breeder queen and will insert it in the brood nest and then give the hive a 50/50 sugar water to help it get started.

Taking Orders for 2024


5 Frame Nuc



5 Frame Nucs ($300).  Nucs are placed in a 10 frame Hive body and include a 2024 queen, 4 frames which are a combination of drawn comb with bees, brood, honey (nectar in various stages of ripening), and pollen. One Frame is blank to allow the hive to expand.  The queen will be a newly installed 2024 queen from the Hawaiian Queen Company and will have a proven brood pattern.  We will ship the nucs in a 10 frame hive body with inner cover, temporary travel lid and a screened bottom board. This equipment will save you money on your hive set up and if you ever need to move your hive use our travel screen. To place an order call Lou at 505-286-4843.


Below is how we ship our nucs and single hives. The screened bottom has a 1.25" opening that can be closed with the yellow cap. We have found that bees in transport will cluster at the bottom of the hive or transport box. If there is not enough room to accommodate the bees and they will block the ventilation screens and suffocate. Notice the foil on the top of the frames. This will fill in any voids between the super and the lid to prevent bee escape and also keep the bees from attaching the lid to the frames with bees wax and propolis. When the bees arrive to their destination you can remove the plug and let them fly until ready to place on their new base. If it needs to be moved again just place the plug back in at dark or early morning and they are ready to move. See our secure website at https//www.nmhoney.com for the types of bees we sell and everything you need to learn about beekeeping.

We have taken the risk out of installing package bees for you in a nuc and have insured that the queen is a good laying queen with a good brood pattern.   When installing package bees there is a risk that the bees will act like a swarm and leave the hive after a few days.  With the presence of open brood, the bees will not leave.  All you need to do is transfer the contents of the nuc to your Langstroth equipment.  You may also keep your bees in the nuc for several weeks before transferring.  We treat all nucs for varroa mites in late March and early April unless you ask us not to do so. 


Availability of BEES are all dependent on WEATHER and other factors which are out of our control.
