Hello!


We would like to assess how 2021 was for NON-migratory New York State beekeepers and their beehives. Information may help to determine trends in honeybee health and enable beekeepers to see these trends.

Please complete the survey as best as you can and write any comments you feel that can add to future surveys and improve the NY Bee Wellness program. Only some questions are required.
The survey usually takes about 10 minutes.

All info is confidential, and general results of the survey will be shared and posted on NYBeeWellness.org in January 2022.

If you would like to send a survey link to other beekeepers, please use the general survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HFP6YMW

For the results of previous surveys, please see the website (NYBeeWellness.org). Remember, results are broken down by regions within New York State.
