All the Buzz About Beekeeping

BONNYVILLE – There was a lot more buzz in the Town of Bonnyville thanks to a local resident who brought her passion for urban bee keeping to the area.

Donna Busque is currently the only Bonnyvillian to receive approval from the Town to install one beehive on her property. She also had two located within the MD of Bonnyville that she keeps an eye on.

“My primary interest in bees is how they function as an organism,” Busque explained. “The reason I wanted bees in my yard was so that I could observe them on a regular basis.”

Although Busque has been beekeeping for four years, she lost her hives last year due to the winter being very hard on honeybees.
