Latest Loss Survey Results 2018-19

Dear BIP Survey participants,


You might have been wondering when the preliminary results of the 2018/9 Bee Informed Partnership Colony Loss and Management Survey will be posted.

Well, today is the day. Thanks for your patience!

The “traditional” abstract is now posted on the BIP webpage here, while the Press Release issued by the University of Maryland can be read here.

We want to thank all of you – whether you are a long-term respondent or a new-Bee to the survey – for participating this year. The information you provided is critical to building a long-term data set that we can now use to develop regionally-specific management recommendations.

Please keep your eyes on our national colony loss map and our interactive management portal. In the coming weeks we will be publishing our 2018/19 state-specific results.

Please take care!

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.
