You can find the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NH2019HiveLoss. We will be collecting data through 4/30.
If you’ve taken the survey in the past, you’ll find that most of the questions are the same. We just tweaked a few to make them clearer. Also, I’ve added a few towns in MA & VT in the “location” question.
The survey is open to all beekeepers in the state – you do not need to be part of NHBA to participate. The results will be published on the NHBA website in June.
We will be giving away a 1 year membership to the NHBA to one lucky survey participant. In addition, the NH Bee club who has the largest percentage of membership participation will win $50 toward refreshments at a future meeting.
If you have questions or would prefer to submit your information over the phone or by paper, please contact Heather Achilles (email@example.com; 603-767-8155)

An interesting article (click above) suggesting that bees may be able to add and subtract. It may be that this is simply an example sequential pattern recognition, but worth considering the argument that bees can do math.
