National Honey Bee Management and Loss Survey Extended to May 6, 2014!

ParticipageTakeSurveyNowThe National Honey Bee Management and Loss Surveys have been extended to May 6th! This survey is for ALL beekeepers of all sizes, with or without unusually high losses this winter.  This survey helps quantify the number and types of bee losses as well as what management practices worked and which ones didn’t’.   The survey is anonymous so please only take the survey once. If Ohio has enough beekeepers take the survey, the results will be separated so that we can see how Ohio compared to other states.  If beekeepers did not lose bees, they should definitely take the survey so we can see what they did (or bees did) to survive! Go to beeinformed.org for more information and to take the survey.
