In this video, we meet Erika Thompson, the professional beekeeper behind the company Texas Beeworks. As we learn, she’s been called to carry out many beehive removals in unwanted areas – a task that she enjoys undertaking – sometimes without even donning protective gear to ward off stings.
Watching her calmly dismantle a buzzing hive, piece by piece, then gently scoop up the bee residents, is fascinating, given most people’s understandable fear in the same circumstances.
For Erika, however, the task merits a composed, methodical approach, and in the end she transplants the honeycomb and the bees into a new hive that she had brought with her, specifically for this purpose.
