This photo taken Friday, Jan. 31, 2014 shows local honey harvested by urban beekeeper Tyson Kaiser on the kitchen counter of beehive host home in Los Angeles. Kaiser, a beekeeper-turned-entrepreneur has recently started his own company, Sweet Bee Removal, by removing unwanted wild hives, relocating them to backyard bee boxes and then harvesting rich, hyper-local honey that can sell for up to $110 a gallon to wealthy foodies obsessed with locally sourced ingredients. Some customers even want honey made by bees in their specific neighborhood because they believe that eating honey made from local pollens will combat allergies. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
