Observing bees up close and personal

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - August 20, 2012

They have bees -- and plenty of them.

About 12,000 Italian honeybees live in a clear plastic hive at The Red Barn Farms and Gardens stand.

George and Miller are engaged and say they especially enjoy the reaction of kids.

The children get to learn about the role bees play in agriculture.

The couple tells the Daily Sentinel newspaper the kids relax once they learn they won't be stung.
