Jen Rasmussen started learning about bees about eight years ago here on the Big Island.  After a few months working with bees, several pests & diseases made their way to the Big Island.  The learning curve was rough for many bees & their keepers.  Several beekeepers lost their bees and struggled to recover.  At this time Jen Rasmussen began her journey learning how to care for bees with these new pests & diseases without the use of chemical treatments.

Over the years the bees have grown strong and capable of protecting and sustaining their hives.  It may be witnessed at Paradise Nectar Apiaries, even after many losses, the strong bees survive, and create the new hives that will repopulate the apiary.  Jen Rasmussen encourages strong hygienic behavior in the hives and teaches how to provide preventative hive management that will keep the bees healthy and strong.
