I don’t need many words to describe my professional history. My name is Rhon Heyl and like all craftsmen the engine that drives me to continue day after day is passion. In my case, a passion born about 45 years ago, when the memory of the first bee sting took on new meaning. I know it sounds strange, since that day I would have to continue to avoid them, be afraid, but find that when a bee stings then dies has fueled the feeling that still drives me to study them, cherish them, take care of them. That single act of courage, so great for a creature so small, made me realize what I was going to do in the rest of my life.
Knowing that these tireless insects are vital for our future and for our ecosystem, feeds the desire to protect and care them in the best way.
After obtaining the degree of botanical I have followed many beekeeping courses alongside the beekeepers in their daily work, transforming the abstract world of the theory in practice. This way I learned the reason for certain operations and how to perform them properly to prevent damage to the bees and their world. The continuous education, which lasted nearly half a century, has allowed me to modernize the work and now I teach new students the techniques learned during years of activity.
Although it’s been so long, the so well organized and efficient bees world never ceases to amaze me; know that these tireless insects are vital for our future and for our ecosystem, it feeds the desire to protect and care them in the best way. After that first bite, caused by my inappropriate behavior, I have been careful to ensure that no other devote their lives to protect the hive. This is not because that day I found to be allergic to their venom, but because their life is as important as our own.
