Coloss Survey on Winter Colony Losses 2024

Your contribution to this annual survey on colony losses would be much appreciated. The survey aims to identify the percentage of colony losses being experienced by beekeepers at both a national and regional level and to identify the possible causes for these losses. To facilitate this type of analysis, it is important that as many beekeepers as possible participate and all the questions in the survey are answered. At various points in the questionnaire, there are short statements marked as Information. These are highlighted in Red and aim to explain the logic of the questions that follow.

Please send completed questionnaires to:

Mary F Coffey,
COLOSS survey,
Backweston Laboratories,
Celbridge,
Kildare,
W23 X3PH

ALL completed surveys should be returned by 30 June 2024.

In late May, the questionnaire will be available for completion online using the link:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/coloss2024

This link will be available on the webpages of FIBKA, NIHBS and IBA CLG and will be sent to local secretaries for circulation to all members. It is important that each beekeeper only completes the survey once.

Thank you
