Lethbridge man uses bees to treat Lyme disease

June 11, 2019

A Lethbridge Beekeeper uses the bees to treat his Lyme disease.

A Lethbridge family has over 200,000 bees in their backyard. They say that neighbours have not complained, but thanked them for providing pollination for their gardens. The family says bees serve a very important medical purpose.

"I started with the bees because I was using bees for therapy. I have lyme disease and bee stinging on the back is...not a popular way for treating the disease but it's effective," says Beekeeper Adrian Veenendaal

If you are interested in beekeeping, all hives must be registered with the province of Alberta.
