Arizona Backyard Beekeepers

Arizona Backyard Beekeepers is a group of Arizona Beekeepers whose motto is “beekeeping alone isn’t fun.” Beekeeping in Arizona is different than any where else and it is vital for beekeepers here to connect and help one another. Our goal is to make meetings and our Facebook group accessible and positive for everyone. Whether you are new to beekeeping or have been doing it for years, you will find a community to help and be helped by. Join us on Facebook and in one of our monthly meetings across the Valley of the Sun.


Hands-On Help


One of our goals is to have hands-on workshops at each of our meetings. Here Roy is showing us how to clip wings and mark queens (using drones for practice).

    I need to locate a beekeeper in the Yuma area that can safely remove a bee hive at my home. Do you have any contact information for one?

  2. Do you look for yards to keep bees on? I don’t want to raise bees myself but would have space if someone wanted it for bees?

  3. I have a neighbor that has bees under her shed. I tried relocating the hive last fall and missed the queen… so they are back! Unfortunately I have left the state and would really like to help save these bees even though I am now in Massachusetts!

    I have a nuc box and frames I purchased for her to start the new (now failed) colony. I would like to connect the property owner with someone who could help do a better job at relocating this colony. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Greg

      You can give her my number. 602-391-9966

      • I have the same problem that Gary’s friend does. I don’t want to kill them if someone could help me relocate them. I live in the Paulden area. If you can help please email me.
