This weekend we visit with 3rd generation beekeeper Ted McFall. He's featured in a brand-new feature documentary, ATTACK OF THE MURDER HORNETS, by filmmaker Michael Paul Stephenson launched last month on Discovery Plus. The international phenomenon of the Asian Giant Hornet, known famously today as the “Murder Hornet,” came buzzing in and scientists quickly discovered their destructive force and detrimental impacts on other species including honeybees. https://www.discoveryplus.com/
