I know I live in Texas and El Paso is in Texas, but you got to remember Texas is a big state. El Paso is 350 miles from me.
All I have are bees I have gotten out of walls and floors. Haven't bought one bee probably never will. I still have 8 or 9 colonies awaiting me to go get them. These are 15 miles, up to 110 miles away.
I guess nobody around here told these feral bees they died off a few years back from the mites.
