  1. The 2020 NZ Colony Loss Survey will launch in early September. Please watch your email inboxes for an invitation to participate. For those who are unfamiliar with the survey, the goal is to quantify winter losses across both regions and time. While NZ's winter loss rates are 'low' by international standards, NZ beekeepers lost around 82,000 hives last winter. Moreover, loss rates at a national level increased 25% between 2015 and 2019. And while some places like the lower South Island have seen year-on-year increases in loss rates since 2015, others like the lower North Island have seen s

I asked well known NZ researchers about the first article at the time; they said the research methodology and writing was legit. I hope some will take this as good news, will see it for what it is, and that we don't get people taking it to extremes either pro or anti.
