Our Mission

Tech teams inspecting colonies on hive stands

The Bee Informed Partnership is dedicated to working with beekeepers to improve colony health and increase colony survivorship. We provide relevant, timely data that helps beekeepers make informed management decisions. Beekeepers of all sides of the industry, from large scale to small scale benefit from our work.

We gather survey data from thousands of beekeepers every year and collect more than 10,000 field samples each season to understand how different management practices, forage, pests, diseases, nutrition and other environmental factors affect honey bee health. These findings are then reported back to you. We provide educational resources and information to the public and beekeepers on the importance of honey bees for our food supply and issues impacting honey bee health. You can browse our data by visiting our popular Research Portal.

You can read more about the services we provide, such as our our diagnostic test kits or planning and conducting of large field trials. Head over to our Blog where you’ll read the latest reports from our Tech Team specialists, our diagnostic lab and our IT team. Find out how you can contribute to citizen science through Sentinel and other programs.

Our organization is built on a coalition of researchers, advisors, and stakeholders from various sides of the industry that rely on honey bees for pollination and honey production. We collaborate with both domestic and international initiatives to make the greatest impact and to work with our partners across the globe.
