We already knew being a beekeeper isn’t for the faint of heart, but Erika Thompson just took things to the next level.
In a video she shared on TikTok, Erika gives us a peek into her job by showing everyone how she removes a swarm of bees from an umbrella. You would imagine that she would carefully approach, covered from head to toe in a beekeeping suit… but you would be wrong.
Instead, the fearless pro walks up to the swarm in regular clothing, effortlessly scoops up the bees with her bare hands, and moves them into a box she brought. When she realizes their queen bee is missing — something that is vital to their survival — she even reveals an extra queen so the swarm can adapt. Talk about being prepared!
Watch the unbelievable rescue in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story.
