Smaller Honey Crops Expected In Texoma

The hot and dry summer has left another area of Texoma Wildlife in a bit of a quandary.  The honey crop is expected to be smaller this year, because bees were not as productive with less flowers to get pollen from.  Beekeepers met Tuesday night and compared notes on production. 

"The bees have produced very little honey in most areas in Texas especially. In Oklahoma and Louisiana there's hardly any honey being produced this year." said President of The WF Beekeepers Association Bennie Watson.

Watson said he expects the price of honey to double because of the extreme dry conditions in the southern portion of the U.S.
