Re: Bee Informed National Survey
I do fill out lots of surveys myself but I plead ignorance on this one. This has never been presented to me as a formal request as the NASS surveys are and the 95% non-response number apparently suggests Mark and I are not alone on this. I would be glad to do so if asked. Frankly the whole issue of losses Is a bit ill defined in my mind as among other things the quality of surviving hives isnt factored in. I probably took around 10% losses through the summer and another 5% to 7% through the winter. With the overall quality this of bees this spring we could easily have made a 25 to 30% increase but stopped when all of our equipment was full.
