The Buzz Around The Beekeeping Influencer Beef

Two of the most improbably wholesome things on this earth are honey bees and niche but adorable online communities. Both are an essential part of their respective ecosystems and put a lot of work into producing something sweet. Combine the two and you get something like @texasbeeworks, the TikTok account that has been bringing beekeeping exploits to the masses.

The face of the account is Erika Thompson, who has been winning hearts and views for her seemingly unconventional methods. Many of her videos show her rescuing bees with no protective equipment, usually scooping them with her bare hands — although she assures viewers that she takes precautions when needed.

So far, so warm and fuzzy. However, this is the internet and nothing is sacred. In recent days, Thompson has been challenged by beekeeper Friday Chamberlain. Over at @lahoneybeerescue, Chamberlain's video slammed the methods of her fellow bee influencer as "setting a dangerous precedent". She criticized her lack of tools, as well as the dangers of dark clothing and long hair. Even worse, she accused her of letting her husband do most of the work behind the scenes.

21 Funny Memes For The Beginning Of Spring

Anyone else feel their seasonal depression slip away as soon as the first sunny day hit? Well, ours isn't completely gone, but we're beginning to feel some hope. There are more hours of sunlight (for most of us), the birds are singing a little louder, and little crocuses and buds are getting prepped for some serious blossoming. Unfortunately, with that blossoming comes those dreaded seasonal allergies. A cruel side effect that has been meme'd almost religiously every year. So while some of these spring memes are celebratory (or dumb) as hell, a whole lot of them remind you that it's not all cheerfulness and roses. It's a whole lot of sneezes, too. But that's a price we're willing to pay if it means we'll be a little happier.

'Murder Hornets' Are 2020's Latest Little Gift To Us

Is anyone even phased by anything anymore? At this point, news could break that an asteroid is barreling toward planet earth and literally no one would bat an eye. It seems that May's little "surprise" for us is the Asian giant hornet, or as it's more commonly being referred to, the "murder hornet" that was spotted in North America for the first time just a few months ago. Luckily these guys typically aren't aggressive toward humans, but they are known to decapitate honey bees with their horrifyingly large claws. On the bright side, perhaps this will encourage people to stay inside so we can tackle the pandemic going on? Thanks 2020!

Each insect species really does seem to have its own unique personality, most of them slightly annoying, yet pretty harmless in the end. And then there's wasps...
