Local Hives Scales Data
"Local hives scales data"...What does that even mean?!
Well, beekeeping is catching up with technology, and scales to monitor the weight (health) of hives are one of the technologies widely available. The scales are wi-fi or bluetooth connected to cell phones, tablets or laptops, then some beekeepers choose to post their data to an online database hosted by the Bee Informed Partnership - an organization that supports beekeepers, researchers and educational efforts for the general public.
