Church “Buzzing” After Discovery Of Enormous Beehive
Date posted - May 4, 2016
James Strickland, a beekeeper and pastor of the Nazarene Church in Le Mars, offered to help the nearby Addaville Methodist Church to remove the hive.
Strickland and two other beekeepers removed the active hive, which took the better part of a day to extract the bees, the hive, the comb and honey.
Strickland and the other beekeepers were wearing full protective gear as they removed the floorboards in the choir loft.
There are discussions about marketing the honey from the church hive as “Holy Honey.”
