I put together this Beehive inspection sheet today. It is easy for me, because I had already used many of this abbreviations when jotting down comments. I now typically don't have time to even write out the abbreviations, so I use this to just check, tick, highlight, circle, etc. the abbreviations.
I've also sometimes found a need for recording "frame-by-frame" inspection results, so this sheet I made with 10 frames, each with popular abbreviations, so I get a better record of what the hive looked like a week or so later after I've forgotten.
10 frames are there, but you easily "X" or scribble off a couple of frames if 10 frame... and so forth for 5-frame nucs, etc.
Besides the abbreviations, I also use some short-cut Q-code abbreviations (schedule/legend below the frames section) for queen status (QR, QM, etc.), plus other easy tick/check/circle for hive, condition, temperament, needs, observations.
Often I and possibly some others have memory lapse when doing bee math to assist in reading of the frames, so I included reminders of dating the frame by using bee math.
I also find myself asking myself about the entrance setting and even the type of bottom board.
This is a first attempt. I'm sure I'll find other things that I wish I could just check off without having to actually write it out.
There is a slight learning curve, but the abbreviations are pretty simple, once you start using them.
