Insect insurance

Don Bennett checks on a colony of bees Tuesday at Bass Farms in Cobden. Bennett was adding honey supers, which create more room for the bees to produce honey, to the hives. Bennett said he was hired by farm owner, Bill Bass, to keep bees on his property to ensure his apple trees would be pollenated. “Mr. Bass might have gotten by with whatever is out there right now, but he likes to have a little bit of insurance,” Bennett said.
