Bees, Bees, Bees

Today on Access Utah's gardening segment: bees, bees, bees. Backyard beekeepers, Bryan and Nancy Williams of Providence, will be in the studio to take your questions. If you have your own bees one of the advantages is an increase in the size and quantity of your fruits and vegetables. They're not as hard to take care of as you think but they do require consistent care.
