How to Keep Bees Like a 5 Year Old Kid


Five-year-old Daniel helped his Uncle Don Miksha with the beekeeping chores at Summit Gardens Honey Farms near Calgary, Alberta in May 2008. We’re not sure who shot the video (Daniel’s father, maybe?), but it’s good fun to watch!

And if the family name sounds familiar to you… yes, this is the clan of Ron Miksha, author of the entertaining and educational Bad Beekeeping book, and his brother David Miksa, a Florida queen breeder — “one of about 50 specialists who are maintaining the endangered bee population by providing thoroughbred royalty to raise colonies,” according to the Chicago Tribune.
