Beehive Beauty Gives Billings a Lift

Date:

BILLINGS – Backyard beekeeping is getting a lot more colorful thanks to Billings resident Tony Seitz.

Seitz retired in 2009 and took up the hobby with his son who showed an interest in beekeeping, but soon he found himself immersed in the hive world.

“This Dr. (Leo) Sharashkin from Missouri was giving a seminar in Bozeman. I thought, ‘Oh I don’t want to go all the way to Bozeman,'” Seitz said. “But I did. And after 15 minutes it was the most interesting thing ever.”

Tony Seitz started crafting unique beehive boxes after taking up beekeeping with his son.

Now Seitz crafts unique beehive boxes as a hobby to brighten up backyard beekeeping. He has long crafted custom chicken coops but decided to branch out.
