one tip, try not to use "medium, strong" etc.
eg stores medium doesn't mean much as it varies a massive amount from person to person.
best way is typically to count how many full frames (fd) worth of stores.
like wise with bees, brood etc.

the single most common problem is beginners underestimate everything.
reporting it by frames helps get around that, so people can give accurate advice.

It’s a pre-compiled form. The answers are provided. That way it accommodates all hive configurations.
