Our Mission

Queen Bee

The Bee Informed Partnership is dedicated to working with beekeepers to better understand which management practices work best. We gather survey data from thousands of beekeepers every season to understand how different management practices affect honey bee health, and we report our findings back to the industry.  See our latest findings in our Research Section

Our project is built on a coalition of researchers, advisors and stakeholders from various industries that rely on honey bees for pollination. We collaborate with both domestic and international initiatives to make the greatest impact and to work with our partners across the globe. You can learn more about our partners by visiting our Advisory Board Section.

In combination with the large annual surveys, we also work directly with beekeepers all over the country to help gather pest and disease data and validate trends in management practices we see in our surveys. You can find out more about our field efforts by going over to our Tech Team’s page in our programs section as well as by heading over to our Blog where you’ll read the latest reports from our field agents.
