Status of beekeeping in the Hawaiian islands


Russell H Messing


The state of Hawaii has a long-standing, well established apicultural industry which differs in many important respects from that in any other region of the USA. It has been over 30 years since the overall status and potential of Hawaiian beekeeping has been reviewed and during that time many changes relevant to beekeeping have taken place, both in the Islands (urbanization, destruction of native ecosystems, greater diversification in agriculture) and on the United States mainland (the arrival of Africanized honey bees, and the introduction of the acarine parasites Acarapis woodi and Varroa jacobsoni).
