Betsy the Beekeeper – Character Insight

I created Betsy the Beekeeper as part of my Canadian Trades/Professions Character Challenge. Beekeeping is a very important profession in Canada and that is because they produce honey, which is also known as Mother Nature’s gold.

Betsy the Beekeeper lives in Perth, Ontario. She’s a friendly and outgoing person who loves being outdoors. But what makes Betsy truly special is her passion for bees and the golden honey they create.

Every day, Betsy tends to her beehives with great care. She wears a special suit to protect herself, but she’s never been stung. How does she manage that? Well, Betsy pays close attention to her surroundings. If she sees a wild animal nearby or senses that the weather might turn stormy, she leaves the bees alone.

Why does Betsy love bees so much? Because they’re essential! Bees make honey, which is not only delicious but also incredibly good for you. It’s a 100% natural food product. Betsy even adds a teaspoon of her homemade honey to her morning cup of tea.

But there’s something even more important about bees: they help our world. You see, bees are pollinators. They visit flowers and spread pollen, which helps plants grow. Without bees, we wouldn’t have many of the fruits and vegetables we enjoy, like apples, strawberries, and watermelons.

And here’s the thing: bees are in trouble. They’ve been dying off at an alarming rate. That’s why Betsy is on a mission to keep bees alive. She knows how crucial they are for our planet. So, if you ever meet Betsy the Beekeeper, give her a big smile and say, “Thank you for taking care of the bees!”
