Tanner and Karlee recently became interested in beekeeping and have put a hive in our backyard. The bees are Italian honey bees and have been here for about six weeks now.
Tanner is smoking the bees to calm them so he can open the hive and see how things are going.
This is what the hive looks like when the top has been removed.
Here, Tanner and Karlee are holding frames lifted from inside the hive.
