The Effect of Invasive Plant Species in Maui

Maui is a place of natural wonder and beauty. But there are several species of non-native plants that are threatening to upset the balance of our delicate eco-system. Some were brought to the island intentionally, while others were brought by accident. Regardless of why those species were brought to the island, the fact remains that they don’t belong and there are consequences for their inflicted presence.

It comes as no surprise to us that Maui is a prime destination for nature lovers from all over the world. Spend ten minutes on the island, and you will understand the appeal: bamboo forests stretching towards the sun as you journey along the Waimoku Falls Trail, the frothy rumble of the waterfalls in Haleakala National Park, and the warm sands lining our shores are just a handful of the breathtaking sights the island holds.


Bee Swarm!

You’ve worked for eight hours; you’ve gone to the grocery store to pick up your husband’s favorite pasta; you’ve picked up your eight-year-old Lyza from ballet; you’ve picked up your three-year-old Liam from daycare. And now, you’re finally pulling into the driveway of your home, only to find that there, hanging on a branch just above the front door of your home, are thousands upon thousands of bees! What to Do?! Bees swarm when their population exceeds the capacity of their original hive. On this momentous occasion, the hive will split, and part of the populous will leave to find a new hive location. A new queen is selected, and hive building begins. But in the meantime, you may find thousands of bees waiting to relocate; and in this particular instance, those bees chose your doorstep for their launching-off point.
