Seasons Greetings!! Hi my name is Ray I am new to this site have been a beekeeper for several years. I live in central New Mexico and love to talk bees, conduct extractions, and capture swarms. I enjoy working with Hot colonies and spend significant time studying honey bee behavior. I currently have 7 hives and just equipped up to maintain up to 37 hives. Hopefully through splits and hive captures i will meet my goal in 2014.
