1857

Honeybees were introduced to Hawaii in 1857 with the hope that it would increase kiawe (Mesquite) pollination which was used as cattle feed. Kona, Hawaii is home to some of the world's largest queen breeding operations. Because of their year-round temperate climate and low wind, it is a perfect climate for raising queen bees.
