    My name is Sena McLaughlin and I am a junior at Hudson Falls High School in New York. I am doing a survey to find a link between Varroa mite infestation in Honey Bees and environment or beekeeping practices for a science experiment through the Science Research Program. If you are a beekeeper, I would greatly appreciate you taking the time to complete this survey and helping me out with my experiment. The link is below.

    I do not keep bees myself. Science Research is
    a three-year program through which each student selects an area of
    interest and studies it in-depth, eventually designing a unique
    research question and pursuing its answer with the help of a mentor. The first year is mainly research, the second is ideally when the experiment is completed, and the third is spent competing in symposiums and writing a final paper. When I first started the program last year, I was trying to find a topic and became interested in pesticides, which led me to honey bees. I spent most of last year looking at the effects of pesticides and honey bees, but started focusing on Varroa mites, and what causes them, this year.
