The National Colony Loss Management Survey is organized by the Bee Informed Partnership and is sponsored by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). It is important that beekeepers participate in this survey because it will help track losses and evaluate management practices. The survey is open from April 1st until April 30th and can be found at http://10.selectsurvey.net/beeinformed/TakeSurvey.aspx?SurveyID=BIP2014
The Colony Loss Survey has evolved from our winter loss survey because last year we found that commercial beekeepers lost 25% of their colonies over the summer, and so we are now starting to monitor and report annual losses. The National Management Survey is conducted annually in conjunction with the Colony Loss Survey. Designed to take about 20 minutes, the 2 surveys are aimed at looking for relationships between colony loses and colony management (including disease treatment strategies, supplemental feeding, etc.) and/or other factors that may influence colony health (such as colony location, honey production, and forage type). Your participation in this research is voluntary and your responses will be kept confidential. In any publication or presentation resulting from this research, no personally identifiable information will be disclosed.
Information about past Winter Loss and National Management Surveys and the annual reports can be found online at beeinformed.org

For over the past year, the Ohio State Beekeepers Association has been working to DEVELOP a ‘Save the Honey’ license plate FOR CONSIDERATION BY THE OHIO STATE BUREAU OF MOTOR VEHICLES. This license plate will bring more public awareness about the plight of the honey bee and raise additional funds that OSBA can use to support education and beekeeping research. House Bill 474 has been proposed to create this license plate by Mike Dovilla (R-BEREA) and DOROTHY Pelanda (R-MARYSVILLE) and OSBA has been given very short notice to testify in front of the Transportation, Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee ON TUESDAY (4/1).
However, We Need Your Help! In addition to our spoken testimony, we can submit letters of support. We are asking all local associations, companies and individuals to submit letters of support. You may use the attached sample letter to HELP YOU compose your letter of support.
Due to the very short notice OSBA has received on this, please submit letters by email to or via fax to 614-633-1036 so that we receive them in time for the meeting. Please have the letters in by midnight on MARCH 31st.
