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.  You can browse our data by using our interactive database, and read about 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. Though our grant funding has ended, we are now a non profit. You can learn more about our nonprofit, The Bee Informed Partnership, Inc.SM  by clicking here.

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 read more about the services we provide, such as our Sentinel Apiaries project, in our programs section, as well as by heading over to our Blog where you’ll read the latest reports from our Tech Team agents.
