    Default New York Beekeepers- SURVEYS

    Please participate in the BeeInformed survey, available until April 15. If enough NY beekeepers complete it, we may see the New York results.
    A homegrown survey by the Finger Lakes Bee Club is similar but shows the results immediately. Please pass the survey info along to other beekeepers. If you are shy about using your real zip code (mapped out), please use a nearby zip code.

    There are too many unknowns for me to fill out the survey. I haven't kept record of sufficient detail.

    There is a radio button for most of the questions for "don't know". I filled out the survey but I don't think 3 hives are worth considering for this survey.

    Well, you can do your best guesstimate, but thanks for your honesty, Mark.

    The Beeinformed is for everyone.

    The Finger Lakes survey is for non-migratory; every entry helps to know what is going on in NY.

    Thank you.

    There is an issue with the beeinformed survey. I lost a hive due to a bug, varroa to be specific, and there is no option for losing a hive, just giving away or selling. The results on this survey will not be accurate.
