Bees get back to work in East Texas
Tyler, TX (KETK) — All forms of agriculture suffered during last year's drought including bee keeping.
But with cooler temperatures, and the recent rainfall, local bees are back to work, and that means more honey for the area.
Local beekeepers tell KETK that they have seen three to four times more honey produced this year than last.
And even if you don't want to have a hive in your own backyard, there is now a surplus of local honey you can buy.
Locally grown honey is more expensive, but experts tell KETK that not only does it taste better, it is also better for you as well.
Experts also tell KETK to meet your beekeeper in person, so that you can see his or her hives, and make sure the honey is at top notch quality.
