AUSTIN – You call the Ghostbusters when something goes bump in the night, but what about if it buzzes?
Erika Thompson, owner and founder of the Austin-based Texas Beeworks, has a pretty unique job.
Sure you’ve heard of beekeeping, but she’s helping to preserve, protect and increase honeybee populations in Texas.
Imagine this — you just moved into a new home and notice a lot of bee activity. Thompson and her company offer an alternative to destroying a healthy bee population.
The company works by helping to support the bees with hive removals and hive hostings for residents and businesses.
Have property? Some bees could save you a buck too if you can qualify for an Agriculture Exemption. You can hire a beekeeper to place and manage hives on your property registered by the Texas Apiary Inspection Service.
The sweetest part? The company doesn’t harvest or sell the honey from its bees.
