Due to an overwhelming request from northern and western beekeepers who have not had adequate good weather opportunities to inspect all their colonies, the Bee Informed Partnership is extending the National Online Winter Loss and Management Survey until April 30th. It is hoped this allows many more beekeepers to participate and join the thousands who have already participated. All beekeepers are encouraged to take the survey and Bee Culture and Bee Informed thanks those who have already taken the time to join the team! Take the survey!
“When California was wild, it was one sweet bee garden throughout its entire length,
north and south, and all the way across from the snowy Sierra to the ocean.”
~John Muir, “The Bee Pastures”
