NH Beekeeper 2021 NH-is-Blooming Call for Volunteers
The NH Beekeeper association will be continuing its NH-is-Blooming citizen science project in 2021 in order to continue to understand the availability of pollen & nectar for our pollinators.
We are looking for volunteers to help look for and record observations of 3-5 different flowers each month. The information on our “target” flowers will be emailed each month along with an observation sheet to record any sightings.
You don’t have to be a beekeeper to take part – contributing even 1 observation helps.
For more info – please go to https://www.nh-is-blooming.com/ or email nh.is.blooming@gmail,.com
Mite Testing Project
We are collecting the last pieces of the Mite test project data – how did the hives do through the winter. Once we have that, we’ll publish final results. We are also considering creating a website to make it easier to submit mite counts in the future, but currently we are focused on getting the NH-is-blooming website finished.
If you have any questions – please give me a shout!
Think Spring! Heather Achilles
Deadout CSI Project
Deadout CSI Project is still continuing. If you do have a deadout, you can find the CSI checklist at : DEADOUT CSI | NH Honey Bee Health and if you would like, submit your findings to the project.
