    Re: National Annual Losses in dollars

    Hey Jim, that's true. They're kind of a pain. If they weren't so long and arduous, and the questions were targeted more towards beekeepers, it would probably have better response?

    Sweet. Simple and clean.

    I'm a bit floored that there isn't any usable data on this! We have more statistics about baseball? Nice.

    Re: National Annual Losses in dollars

    That's a good point. A more useful perspective would be the losses across the board, including bees, crops pollinated by bees, and I guess even honey could be relevant, because the higher prices...

    Re: National Annual Losses in dollars

    Thanks for your info and discussion, Jim!

    Re: National Annual Losses in dollars

    Sure, I understand that. But the losses used to be on the order of 10%, right? I'm not saying I want to be sensationalist about it, but I'd like to be able to quantify the current losses in terms of...

    National Annual Losses in dollars

    Hi! Does anyone know where to look for the financial costs of losing +-30% of managed hives every year? I'm interested in how much the increase in hive losses is costing, nationally, on an annual...
