The NH Beekeepers Association (NHBA) is collecting data on NH honeybee hive loss for the winter of 2018/2019.
The survey is available online at the link below until 4/30. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NH2019HiveLoss
The short survey is open to all beekeepers in the state – you do not need to be part of NHBA to participate. The results will be published on the NHBA website in June. We will be giving away a 1 year membership to the NHBA to one lucky survey participant. In addition, the NH Bee club who has the largest percentage of membership participation will win $50 toward refreshments at a future meeting.
We also have 2 other citizen science projects this year – Deadout CSI to collect observations on the winter deadouts & Mite Testing to collect monthly information on mite loads. More details can be found at NH-HoneyBee-Health.com
