The Bee Informed Partnership has this additional project that many of you may be eligible to participate in:

Sentinel Apiary Program

We are now accepting applications for the 2017 Sentinel Apiary Program. With data collected from Disease Load Monitoring and a Hive Scale, you will get the tools and information you need to take your beekeeping to the next level. You will be able to make more informed management decisions, as well as share information with beekeepers in your region to encourage collaborative colony monitoring and management.
