Queen Management Survey
A group of beekeepers and bee professionals in the Northeast are writing a grant to promote queen breeding among younger and under-represented beekeepers. In order to develop a strong proposal, they need information about current queen buying and queen rearing practices.

In other words, they need your help!

It should only take about 5 minutes of your time. Your responses will help us strengthen beekeeping in the region.

This survey is geared toward hobbyist and small-scale beekeepers.
Thank you for your input, we appreciate you.
