Beekeepers – Take the Survey!

We recently had the pleasure of hearing Dewey M. Caron, Emeritus Professor University of Delaware and Oregon State University Affiliate Faculty, speak to our group about the dwindling numbers of bees in the United States and the impact of Africanized bees on domestic colonies. The loss levels across the country were very interesting and the history of losses over the years was eye opening. If you’re a beekeeper, whether you have one hive or one thousand hives, you’re invited to take part in the survey at Once you’ve taken the survey you’ll also be able to view the results.
