Photos: Local beekeepers and their hives 

August 8, 2013
This week, Deanna Pan writes about bees, colony collapse and what beekeepers are doing about it. Below are photographs of two commercial beekeepers who employ different methods of hive management. Mark T. Durst and Sons, photographed in Medical Lake, prefers to use a hands-off approach to hive management while Olson's Honey, photographed at their facility in Moses Lake, has used more active approaches, including using CO2 to keep their bees alive during the winter months.
