Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

Greetings Beekeeper!

The 13th annual Bee Informed Partnership National Colony Loss & Management Survey is LIVE!

In fact, it’s been live for 11 days already!

If you have submitted your answers – thank you, thank you, thank you. You are one of over 2,000 beekeepers that have done so!

If you have not, we are patiently waiting for you 😉 Remember, you only have until April 30th to participate.

The current number of survey respondents is tracking previous years. But like previous ones, we are reaching a little plateau in respondents now that we are over one week in.

That’s the signal that we need to reach out to you, America’s beekeepers!

We want to beat last year’s 5,000 responses! We also need you to be Town Criers – please pass on this message to fellow beekeepers! You don’t have to include the sketch 😉

Your contribution is impactful!

For example, it’s helping the Bee Informed Partnership to build annual state loss MAPS that are crucial to understanding how beekeeper management practices influence honey bee health.

So far we have built a WEB PORTAL that allows you to investigate how management practices are correlated to colony mortality.

But that’s only the start.

Thanks again for your support of our efforts! We truly believe this is a team effort by everyone.

The Bee Informed Partnership is a collaboration of efforts across the country from some of the leading research labs and universities in agriculture and science to better understand honey bee declines in the United States. Supported by the United States Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, we’re working with beekeepers to better understand how we can keep healthier bees. The key to our success is the true partnership we maintain across a wide range of disciplines including traditional honey bee science, economics, statistics, and medical research that makes all these tools available to this important research. And just as important as the tools are the people. We not only have the leading researchers in the honey bee industry, we also have advisory boards from the commercial beekeeping industries, almond and other commercial growers, as well as naturalists and conservationists from across the country.
