    Abstract

    The COLOSS history of collecting and analyzing data on honey bee colony losses extends back to 2009, when a coordinated approach involving twelve European countries was undertaken to better understand colony losses. This group developed a standardized questionnaire to ask beekeepers about their hive management and overwintering success.
