    Lightbulb Bee's Population Decline Survey

    Good Day,

    We are conducting a research for our thesis project. It would help if you could answer a few questions for us regarding the decline of bees. We are hoping that we could take your time into answering these questions. It would also help if you could ask some people who know much about bees could be asked.

    Thank you for your time.

    Do you mean honeybees or other types?

    Yes, it would be honeybees that I would mean. But it would also be okay to talk about other types. I'd still focus more on honeybees.

    Quite frankly this survey is pretty dumb.

    I will re-phrase johno's comment.... Any answers are going to be very subjective and quite frankly, you are not going to be able to draw any conclusions from them I suspect.

    Jodhale can I ask what is the purpose of the survey? University or something?

    Thing is, honeybee numbers in many countries have actually increased over the last few years, because although there are losses, reproduction is faster. There is not really a problem.

    It appears that you already have a bias.
    I have about 75 more hives now than I had a year ago. Experiencing a negative decline here.

    I have to agree with the wording on the survey. After two years of mite/viral losses (I came out of the 2015 winter with one hive). I reorganized my thinking about monitoring/treatment. bought two nucs, caught maybe two swarms and went into winter with 15 hives. Rabbits ainít got nothing on bees when it comes to reproduction!
