2022-23 Winterloss Survey Report

Every year we like to see how well the bees did over the winter. This survey does not replace the official OMAFRA winterloss survey, which is used for provincial, national and research statistics and purposes, but we do like to see what is happening in Ontario with our members and followers.
Things are looking up for the 2023 Season.
476 beekeepers responded to the OBA’s winter-loss survey for the winter period of 2022-2023. The submissions indicate that 64% of responding beekeepers lost 20% or less of their colonies this past winter. 
The total average loss for beekeepers in Ontario, according to the number of colonies reported in total sits at 16.25%.
