Operating along the front lines of honey bee health, beekeepers and other bee health stakeholders can arm themselves with knowledge and tools to better protect their hives. The Honey Bee Health Coalition engages these stakeholders and provides the critically important tools to spread best management practices and ultimately improving honey bee health.


01. Varroa Guide

A guide explaining practical, effective methods to manage Varroa mites within your hives.

02. Hive Management

A variety of well-vetted resources designed to make it easy for beekeepers to find practical information that they can use.

03. Incident Reporting Guide

Identify and implement Coalition actions to promote and improve beekeeper incident reporting regarding crop pest management-related bee health incidents. The Coalition also has called for comprehensive, risk based assessments to understand factors that may impact acute losses and/or chronic effects.

04. Beekeeper’s Role

Proactive communication between growers, applicators and beekeepers is essential to protect honey bees from unintended pesticide exposure.


Adopting bee-friendly farming practices benefits both growers and beekeepers. But as farming practices have changed, ideal bee landscapes have become more difficult to find. The Honey Bee Healh Coalition provides the tools and resources for growers to ensure pollinators have nutritional resources necessary to support bee health.


01. Crop Best Practices: Canola, Corn, Soybean

Our Coalition has worked with its members and stakeholders to develop best management practices to help protect honey bees and other pollinators in and around agriculture fields.

02. Crop Consultant, Advisor, Applicator Training

The Honey Bee Health Coalition, in partnership with the National Pesticide Safety Education Center (NPSEC), has developed an education module targeted specifically for pesticide applicators, advisors and crop consultants.

03. Grower’s Role

Landowner and beekeeper cooperation based on mutual interests is important to mitigate risks of pesticide exposure to pollinators.

For Everyone

Multiple factors affect bee health, including pests and diseases, poor nutrition, and pesticide exposure. Addressing any one factor by itself is good — but working together to address all of these factors is even better. We all play a role in supporting bee health.


01. Bee Integrated Demonstration Project

The Bee Integrated Demonstration Project brings together beekeepers and landowners to show how an array of best management practices (BMPs) can be combined in agricultural landscapes to improve the health of honey bees and other pollinators.

02. Plant Habitat: Farmers for Monarchs

Identifying and implementing solutions on agricultural and ranching lands to achieve a sustainable monarch butterfly population.

03. Support the Coalition: Donate

Make a tax-deductible financial contribution to the Honey Bee Health Coalition to implement solutions that will help to achieve a healthy population of honey bees.

04. Tools and Resources

The Coalition aims to provide the best available tools and resources for improving honey bee health.
