Bees in a bucket

Friday, April 14, 2017
Dr. Douglas Miller, a beekeeper from Holiday Island, removes a swarm of bees Wednesday from a tree at Lucky Dragon Cafe in Berryville. Miller said he brushed the queen into the bucket, prompting the other bees to go in the bucket to protect her. While it is a couple of weeks early for swarm conditions, Miller said swarms occur when an old queen leaves a hive and takes some of the worker bees with her.
