McFall Beeyard

McFall Beeyard has been enjoying the fascinating world of beekeeping for decades. With each passing season, we are touched, moved, and inspired in knowing that we are propagating healthy populations of bees who forage and pollinate our farmer’s crops, our neighbor’s gardens, and wild vegetation that sustains wildlife. The entire ecosystem benefits from our bees. McFall Beeyard seeks to grow the population and health of honeybees, one colony at a time.

Murder Hornets Destroy Entire Bee Colony

McFall Beeyard had the unfortunate experience of suffering the slaughter of an entire bee colony by Asian Giant Hornets.  The Murder Hornet is a grave threat to honeybees and our beeyard happens to be located exactly where the Murder Hornets are trying to take a foothold into the United States.  Having an entire bee colony beheaded has turned much of our time and efforts to defend the honeybee!

We are doing everything we possibly can to detect and eradicate these creatures, including investing time and money baiting various types of traps.  We are trying our best to help win the battle against Murder Hornets before they spread to protect the honeybees.

Our predicament with the Asian Giant Hornet has captured a great deal of media attention. The story that began the media frenzy was an article in the New York Times which included the slaughtered McFall Beeyard colony: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/05/02/us/asian-giant-hornet-washington.html

SAVE THE BEES… SAVE THE WORLD!

We feel a great sense of urgency to protect and preserve the honeybee; and it is an overwhelmingly worthy task.  The importance of honeybees cannot be overstated.  The pollination that honeybees perform is vital to our food supply.
