As title states, I received mine today, it said I was 1 of 2000 selected.

Guess I must be special!:spam:

We got the same thing from the UBKA a few weeks ago. It was circulated through the regional BKAs rather than being randomly selected.

What no question about what crops are near you and if you know what if any sprays were used.

To save them the time and effort analysising the results from the uestions they have asked they will get the following results.

Losses down on last year
Varroa on the increase
Increased resistance to treatments

You do get a free origami lesson with every questionnaire though.

I can see many 70 year old plus beekeepers trying to make an envelope for a couple of hours then saying "sod it" and throwing it in the bin.
