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.
