I live on the island of Maui and we have seen the Varroa mites making their way into the State. so far Maui has been partial spared, but encroaching development and the lack of the right type of plants are becoming a problem too.

We have a Honey Bee that is native to Hawaii and so far has seemed to be more immune to these pests, but encouraging everyone to plant as many kinds of plants that bees love that can be done in almost any setting, whether it's a farm or just a back yard garden, is highly encouraged.

It takes as many as 200,000 flowers being visited daily by bees to get a teaspoons worth of honey.

They may not be the only pollinators around, but definitely a very important one!
