Dr. Geoff Williams is an assistant professor at Auburn University. He is in charge of the Bee Lab and is on the Board of the Bee Informed Partnership. Selina Bruckner is a PhD student in entomology at Auburn and working on the Annual Colony Loss and Management Survey.

The Bee Informed Partnership Colony Loss and National Management Survey is now in its 13th year and BIP is able to use the wealth of data to start to understand how management practices are impacting colony mortality across the country. 

It doesn't matter how many hives you have: Whether you are a backyard beekeeper, a sideliner or a commercial beekeeper - your information can be helpful to everyone. The survey closes on April 30th, so please use the link below to take the survey online. Your
