Setting up bees-ness on Highway 54

Posted on Wednesday, May 16, 2012 at 8:45 am

Bees begin getting comfortable in a bee box.

A family of 2,000-3,000 bees made a home on a “No Fried Chicken Dinner” sign at the corner of Main St. and U.S. Highway 54 last Thursday in Vandalia.
Beekeeper Henry Irvine was called in to remove the bees and their hive from the location. He placed them inside a bee box and added them to his other bees residing on his property.

Bees hang on a pole after their hive’s removal.
