Let’s journey into her #cabinlife story.

The Channel

Texas Beeworks

Real Name(s)

Erika Thompson

She does NOT have a boyfriend publicly, but may have one privately.

Given her audience (of mostly middle-aged men), she doesn’t want to lose half of audience who enjoy the novelty and fantasty of having a ‘digital girlfriend’.


Erika received backlash for not using gloves when handling bees, which sent the internet into chaos!

So many people wanted to cancel her. Most of her audience is women and some weren’t happy with the way she was doing things.


Austin, Texas


Erika has been handling bees for years. When she started uploading to YouTube and TikTok, she went viral for her bee handling methods.

Net Worth

Female YouTubers are often wealthier than we imagine. I looked through her channel metrics and social engagement, and this is my best estimation…

As of 2024, Erika from Texas Beeworks has a net worth of $3,300,000 USD. This means she’s definitely a queen!

Being that rich certainly helps her live the idyllic life in Texas.

She’s been on the Joe Rogan podcast and Joe only interviews people who are multi-millionaires.


In addition to net worth, it’s also surprising how much her channel makes. Again, I’m estimating that…

Outside of selling bees, hives and honey, Texas Beeworks makes $22,000 USD per month on YouTube and TikTok.

Erika makes this much through the ads that play on her 1.5m subscriber channel.

She’s definitely business-minded and is treating her channel seriously.


Apart from Joe, I haven’t seen her collab with anyone famous.

She was featured on WIRED’s YouTube channel a few years ago:

Future Plans

Where to next? Erika wants to continue to be known as “The Bee Lady” or “The Bee Boss” and do things her way. She isn’t looking to become too famous as she’s already well known in the industry.


I haven’t discovered any gossip, other than the backlash she received for not using gloves.


What can we learn from her #beekeeper journey?

➜ Everyone has a unique way of doing things

➜ Remain humble, despite your success

And of course, focus on one thing and doing it extremely well.

My Thoughts

Erika has the sweetest voice and her hair actually looks like honey. It’s no wonder that she rarely gets stung!
