Erin Masterson Holko, owner of the Masterson Garden Center, has been a beekeeper for the past decade. He learned that humans and bees can live together in peace and use what started as a hobby to teach beekeeping to members of the community by teaching beekeeping to date. A beekeeper’s favorite moment is when he sees a new queen bee coming out of their cells and hears the queen bee singing. When she first started working with bees, Erin did not understand the therapeutic benefits of bees and now feels empowered when working with them.
Tara and Jeff Han, owners of Honeybee Haven, have been on a bee rescue mission for the past five years. The twins receive a bee that, among other things, escapes from the fallen trees and the walls of the house, and they spend all their time on these tasks. These missions take five to six hours to complete detailed care, and after rescuing the bees, they take the colonies to their beehives and take about three weeks to assess the bees. They assess the health of bees, test their mood and treat them in any medical matters. Then, they move the bees to one of the five properties and continue caring for them every few weeks.
The amazing place where Tara and Jeff removed a beehive is the Graestone Manor – Victoria’s historic palace in Gasport, built 150 years ago. Bees have been gathering there for 100 years, but many beekeepers are afraid to collect bees. The Hahns were intrigued by the terrible tremors and gathered the three colonies, but at first moved around the house without seeing some ghost curtains.
