The PoshBee project, which the BBKA is supporting, is developing a new tool that gives an
overview of the health status of beehives, involving 8 countries: Estonia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK. By filling in these surveys you can help the team investigate incentives and barriers to using the new tool. Surveys are completely anonymous and take 10-15 minutes to complete.

What are the benefits to beekeepers and growers?

The tool will give a rapid insight into the health of the colony. Beekeepers will be assisted with early identification of beehive issues (pesticide exposure, diseases, malnutrition,etc.), while growers will be provided with information on adopting better farm management systems and more reliable honeybee pollination services.

Your contribution is important!

Beekeepers and growers are key to understanding motivations as well as barriers to the use of the new tool; your contribution will help us identify and tackle potential issues,refine the tool, and ensure it will be widely used.
