Keeping buzzy: Beekeeper Thomas Douville tends to one of his beehives, looking for a queen and checking progress among drone bees, as he works to prepare for summer honey production Tuesday in Spokane’s Peaceful Valley neighborhood. Douville owns Selkirk Honey Farm and sells his honey at a number of local markets, including Rusty’s Produce in Spokane Valley and Mother’s Cupboard Nutrition in Spokane. Douville, who got into beekeeping from a friend 13 years ago, said anyone interested in the hobby should contact the Inland Empire Beekeepers Association. (Tyler Tjomsland)
