Re: 2016 USDA Bee and Honey Inquiry
I hear ya Dan. I received the 2 headed monster (quarterly loss survey AND bee and honey inquiry) this week as well. Just waiting for the onslaught of follow up calls that continue even after I have taken the time to do the online filings. I just hate answering these questions over the phone as it always takes me a bit to do the due diligence it takes to give accurate numbers.
In the case of the loss survey it always amazes me that they will begin asking what your December 31st hive numbers before December 31st even arrives. Shoot, I haven't seen my bees in 6 weeks. Hold on ma'am let me shine up my crystal ball........
