Door County beekeepers see honey production fall in 2018

Door County beekeepers say honey production was off in 2018 and that followed the trend statewide.  The National Agricultural Statistics Service found Wisconsin produced 2.3 million pounds of honey in 2018.  That's off 23-percent from 2017.  Max Martin, with the Door County Beekeepers Club, says that's not surprising in light of last year's weather conditions.

 

 

Martin says beekeepers are also working constantly to treat their hives for mites that have killed off a large number of honey bees.
