Explore BIP’s rich collection of honey bee health data collected for over a decade at!

The Bee Informed Partnership currently collects a wide variety of honey bee health monitoring data ranging from colony assessments made by our Technical Transfer Specialists to those voluntarily answering online surveys. Some of these data (commercial assessments) are confidential, but other data, such as that from our annual loss and management data are made public at

The application BIP uses to collect this data is now available to all beekeepers! BIP ArcHive is based on the database and hive inspection procedures used by BIP Honey Bee Health Specialists in commercial operations since 2011. The application aids the beekeeper, inspector, or beekeeping consultant in keeping track of colony health and management actions over time. The free version, BIP ArcHive, is focused for individuals to track their own colonies and quickly view a timeline of management actions and varroa levels, enabling the beekeeper to better visualize their varroa levels in relation to management they do.

For desktop, tablet, and mobile use, BIP ArcHive is accessible to all beekeepers at
