Saturday, August 17th is National Honeybee Day and in honor of this special day, Elizabeth goes on the hunt for bee hives in unexpected places. Her first stop is Adam’s Pest Control in Medina. You might not think of a pest control company headquarters as the perfect home for a hive of honeybees, but Elizabeth learns that the team at Adam’s is dedicated to bee health.
They not only have their own hives but they routinely refer clients to safe bee relocation services instead of exterminating hives that have popped up in less than ideal places. Her second stop is Surly Brewing where the executive chef not only creates delicious food to pair with beer, but manages the brewery’s backyard hives and harvests the honey to use in several dishes on the menu. Now Elizabeth is even more inspired to have her own backyard bees!
