I hope all the commercial beeks here take the time to fill this out. It would help to have an accurate study...not that the Govt. would actually do anything with it.

I just filled it out. I understand their rationale for asking about splits and purchases between October and April, but another question that might be relevant would be how many splits, nucs, packages were acquired from April 1 thru Oct. 1, also.

NPR had a researcher from Beltsville on today. They talked about this survey. I did mine. :)

I feel the same. I filled out the survey but I don't know why. It really doesn't include us northern stationary beekeepers. I raise hundreds of nucs from April 1 to October 1. I sell hundreds of nucs too, but never from October 1 to April 1.
