     With our honeybees at risk from more hazards than ever, Record keeping has become one of the most important tools in the beekeeper's kit.  Good records reflect consistent inspections based on a checklist of items that, when reviewed help to identify problems early and effectively.  Jerry Freeman of Hamburg, Arkansas, has put together one of the best inspection forms around. The form can be found here (http://freemanbeetletrap.com/yahoo_site_admin/assets/docs/HiveInspectionArticle2.33152129.pdf).  The instructions that accompany this inspection form are an excellent quick reference for both beginners and experienced beekeepers alike.
