Despite the audible buzz created by the thousands of bees that swarm around him, Terry Leggett, beekeeper and UTA alumnus finds his work relaxing.

Leggett, who has approximately 10 beehives at his home, responds to calls for bee removal at commercial and residential properties. He takes the honeycombs that can be saved and places them into one of his hives or gives it to other local beekeepers.

Leggett started beekeeping as a hobby five years ago and quit his job as an accountant to pursue beekeeping and his other business, Game Country USA.

He worked as an accountant for 10 years after graduating from UTA in 2006 with his bachelor’s degree.

“For me, it’s about the bees,” Leggett said.
