#BeekeeperStories part 6: The challenge of staying organised
Tobias is an ex-filmmaker. Ten years ago, he used to be unsatisfied with his movie maker job, when he found his new passion. After helping a professional beekeeper for 3 months, Tobias liked it so much that he took a professional training course and became a beekeeper himself. He now works at Bee Health Service, where he advises beekeepers and veterinarians.
What he finds most exciting about beekeeping is queen breeding, as he loves studying how new queens develop. However, he finds honey extraction the hardest part.
The biggest challenge in beekeeping is trying not to jeopardise the relationship with your partner, he says jokingly. Sometimes everyday life can get very chaotic when you spend a lot of time with your bees, so Tobias believes it is very important to try and stay organised. His goals change and develop over the years, but more than anything he tries to keep his bees healthy while being efficient and not overworking.
The #BeekeeperStories campaign aims to highlight the importance, opportunities, and challenges of beekeeping. The stories are shared weekly on the project’s website, as well as on the B-GOOD social media channels. Stay tuned to learn more about the world of beekeeping!
