The 2023-2024 US Beekeeping Survey is Live!

Hosted by: Apiary Inspectors of America and Auburn University

Spring has sprung in most parts of the country, which means it’s time to take the pulse of the beekeeping industry by recording managed honey bee colony losses and beekeeping practices across the United States. Results of colony loss and management surveys are important in many ways, from helping to raise awareness and resources for beekeeping, to setting research directions within our great network of land-grant universities.

Because the Bee Informed Partnership (BIP) is no longer administering an annual survey, Auburn University, in partnership with the Apiary Inspectors of America, has created a survey that continues long-term monitoring of key aspects of the US beekeeping industry by complementing BIP’s efforts over the past 15+ years.

Please contribute as a Citizen Scientist to this monitoring effort before midnight on May 31st. All US beekeepers aged 18 and over – from backyard hobbyists to those running multi-state commercial operations – are invited to participate. The survey will take 15-30 minutes to complete.
