Download the Note Sheet 2016 PNWals Prep here!
This form is provided to assist in your note gathering throughout the year in order to prepare you for next Aprils PNW Annual Loss Survey. At that time surveys will be once again offered in both paper and electronic forms through www.pnwhoneybeesurvey.com. Print this now and note what you remember from this 2015 season thus far. Then update it early next year as you begin to take inventory of what survived and what may need to be ordered. Good wintering to you all!!!!
Q -Some of the items may have multiple answers but the form allows only one.
A– Yes we realized too late that asking for how individuals get the majority of their information (i.e. allowing only a single answer) and only one response for membership affiliation was too restricting. Next year we will open up answer possibilities.
Q – On the first page or two, you asked questions that should have been check boxes rather than radio buttons. You asked for the MAJOR source of information when getting started. I couldn’t really pick ONE, but I had to randomly pick one of the most important (books, magazines, etc). But equally important were internet web sites, club meetings, and mentors. There was a second question that suffered from this same problem, either right before or right after the above question, but I can’t remember now what it was.
A – You are correct on these two questions at the beginning of the survey. We will likely want to adjust this to multiple choice in the next version. Thank you for taking time to send us comments.
