Re: Is CCD a myth?
I think the federal government makes a good attempt at their reports. I know in my case they are relentless until you give them what they want. Are they accurate? More a case of garbage in garbage out as I see it, many beekeepers refuse to fill them out and quite often some fly under the radar and the government is never aware of them. If you have never dealt with a county FSA office they may not know about you. I think they are probably useful in showing trends more than highly accurate numbers.
