On Wednesday, November 2, 2022, the Rostraver Woman’s Club (RWC) hosted Bonnie Hall, an Apiary Inspector at Fells United Methodist Church.  Vice-president Joyce Timko brought in Hall to educate the woman’s club. 

Apiary Inspector, Bonnie Hall

 Hall is a Rostraver Township resident who has been inspecting bee colonies for over 23 years.  She inspects for 10 counties in our area with over 8,500 beekeepers and 51,000 bee colonies.  Hall educated the club about the problems honeybees are facing:  mites from Yugoslavia, other parasites, diseases, etc.  Hall stressed the importance to stop spraying lawns and using pesticides.  Asian hornets and yellow jackets attack honeybees. Hall explained the myth of bears going after honey like Winnie the Pooh.  Instead bears actually go after the baby bees.  A queen bee can lay up to 3,000 eggs a day until the worker bees tell her to stop.  Beekeepers rent bees out to farms such as Trax, Duda’s, Bebout, etc.  They transport bees at night when they are calm.    If you would like more information, please contact Hall at
