The Bee Informed Survey is an annual survey of American beekeepers which questions beekeepers on various things including how many hives they lost.

The preliminary results for the 2022 - 2023 survey found winter losses were 37.4%, and losses for the full year were 48.2%.

Despite this, hive numbers have stayed about the same due to package bee supplies and splitting survivors.
