    Please rank the following problems based on your past year of beekeeping.
    1- being the worst problem.
    9- being no problem at all.
    Please use each number from 1-9 only once to rank.

    This survey was sent to me by one of the bee magazines and that's the scale they wanted to use. So please try and order them as indicated even if you don't have bears or AFB or beetles.


    __ Tracheal Mites
    __ Varroa
    __ Resistant AFB
    __ Chalkbrood
    __ Skunks
    __ Bears
    __ Prices
    __ Small hive beetle
    __ Queens
    ============================================


    2 Tracheal Mites
    1 Varroa
    5 Resistant AFB
    4 Chalkbrood
    7 Skunks
    8 Bears
    6 Prices
    9 Small hive beetle
    3 Queens

    thanks

    8__ Skunks
    9__ Bears
    1__ Prices
    7__ Small hive beetle
    2__ Queens

    This doesn't work very well for me. I dont have any bears, SHB, AFB, and none of the rest have been any trouble either, except for some new queens superceeding.

    Varroa here. And deformed wing virus. But the varroa is under control now and the DWV has cleared up considerably.

    I agree that the numbering sequence is a bit
    on the odd side.
