Sentinel Apiaries is a seasonal, monthly monitoring program. Members send our lab samples for four or eight colonies to be tested for Varroa and Nosema, providing longitudinal data May through October.
The annual Loss and Management Survey is a holistic questionnaire for you to tell us about your colony losses, treatment, feeding, and more. We have, on average, over 5,000 beekeepers take this survey each year!
MiteCheck is an in-field app allowing you to self-report mite levels from alcohol or sugar shakes. Your results are added to our map to let others know what is happening in your area and nationwide.
PollenCheck is an in-field app allowing you to self-report pollen collected in pollen traps. This can help you and researchers track nutritional quality and quantity through the season.
