The Bee Informed Partnership is a collaboration of efforts across the country from some of the leading research labs and universities in agriculture and science to better understand honey bee declines in the United States. Supported initially by the United States Department of Agriculture and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture but now a not-for-profit, we’re working with beekeepers to better understand how we can keep healthier bees.



The tradition of beekeeping history in Ohio is reflected in the membership and past membership of OSBA. Ohio, the home of the A.I. Root Company and final resting place for L. L. Langstroth and A.I. Root, is proud of its role in this tradition. The Ohio State University continues to lead in honey bee research and beekeeping extension. While the state no longer has the largest bee-supply manufacture in the world, or sends out more queens than any other state, we still have some of the best beekeepers in the world. We are pleased that you are visiting our pages.
