Honeybees Return to Canton's McKinley Museum Featured

Written by

The bees are back! A new observational beehive has returned to the McKinley Museum in Canton after their old hive of bees was poisoned. 

The Canton Repository reports that last August the Museum’s beehive was taken out by an unknown culprit who poisoned the hive with a chemical pesticide. Canton police and the Ohio Department of Agriculture investigated the poisoning but there weren't many leads, with security cameras at the wrong angle to capture the crime.

But now thanks to financial support from the community, who raised $3,752 on giving Tuesday last November a brand new beehive has been installed. The museum extended their thanks to those who gave money saying, “Your donations allowed us to continue our conservation efforts and educational outreach for the endangered honeybee.”
