Re: CCD Database - Locations
Why? Seems like you may be focusing on the negative. If I only reported my Dieback and not my expansion seems like that would illustrate an untrue picture about the state of my operation. Dieback/Losses are not an indication of the state of an apiary.

I didn't understand how to make a Report.
I have noticed lately that when I have been out to add supers to hives every other yard or so has one or two queenless, or dronelayer colonies. Left alone they would eventually be a deadout. I call that Summer Dieback. Talking to Randy Oliver last Saturday he said that he has observed the same thing. Maybe you'd like to add that to your List.
