RICHMOND, Va. – Are you looking for some free-"bees"? 

Virginia residents looking to start a buzz are able to apply to the commonwealth's Beehive Distribution Program. If chosen, you'd be able to get your hands sticky -- in the best way possible -- by receiving as many as three beehive units and becoming a registered beekeeper with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.  

The general assembly approved $125,000 for the program, which will start accepting applications July 1. Applications will be accepted until funding runs out.
