Research and Product Testing

The Bee Informed Partnership periodically performs field trials or contract work for industry organizations, researchers and pharmaceutical companies.  Our highly trained, impartial Technical Transfer Professionals will test new or developmental products, effectiveness in real world settings of existing products, or new management techniques. Additionally, our known expertise in epidemiological models and statistical analyses are utilized in several contracts with organizations who require analysis of portions of our annual loss and management survey to investigate hypothesis driven research.

Results of field trials, usually involving commercial beekeeping operations, are listed chronologically in order to be transparent about the work we do as well as the results of these trials, many of which directly benefit both beekeepers and researchers.
