At the first step of the apiary management section you have to add apiary with basic info such as apiary name and location of your apiary. The software will respond with Longitude and Latitude of your chosen position. You can add as many apiaries as you like with different locations.
After adding your apiaries you will be able to add hive that belongs to apiaries. At hives section, form appears with the basic hive data required. Add hive name or number, type of the hive, queen’s color and year. Hive will be listed on specific apiary. At the end of this process all your hives is listed and appears in the hives main section. All other columns regarding inspections we will added as inspection data in the next step
Inspections section is the core of our apiary management software. In the first appearance the list of inspections is empty and the first step is to add inspections. Besides inspection`s name and date , you can add time you spent at apiary and comment about all your inspection observation. For every specific bee hive you can add number of frames with brood (BR), food frames (FF) and frames with bees (BF). Comment for every single beehive is available. After adding all necessary data the first inspection appears in the list with main parameters.
Besides inspections you can record beehive treatments and feeding, as well. Both, treatments and feedings have a similar approach. Main idea is to add basic data and chose all or specific beehives included in this task. You can use this tool even you have specific task on one or a few beehives. Comment section is available for all additional observations and data.
At the hives section you can find list of your hives with the latest basic data. If you click on detailed view you will find all records available for specific beehive. All inspections, treatments and feedings are at one list where you can track progress of your bee colony based on number of bee and brood frames. You can filter all this data by date and get more specific information.
