Hive treatment - period

Thank you for sending us your thoughts! We really appreciate it since we are always looking for ways to make Apiary Book even better.

"Hi, thanks for your fantastic app, we need to have the possibility to mark when you finish a treatment too, not only the beginning.

Different types of treatment are performed. If you used chemical treatments, the most common are distributed by strips and they usually last in the hives 6-8 week (active ingredients that you can introduce as a possible choice are: flumethrin (Bayvarol); fluvalinate (Apistan); Amitraz (Apivar)). Organic treatment are based on organic products such as Thymol; oxalic acid, formic acid, etc. They are performed for a range period of 1 day (oxalic acid) and about 1 month.

Thanks a lot for you app."

Hive inspections

One of the most important tasks any beekeeper can do as part of their inspection is record tracking.

It is one of the most important things all beekeepers can do to help keep healthy colonies of honey bees.


 Key things to look for during an inspection:
- total number of frames with bees and brood
- queen presence
- any sign of diseases/pests
- quantity of honey, pollen
- strength of bee family

"Clicking on a bar on the financial graph that takes you to the record so you can see what the expense/income was could be a welcome feature for apiarybook.

Best regards from a happy apiarybook user,

Forage map

In both stationary and migratory beekeeping, the beekeeper must seek to place his colonies in or near areas where a sufficient quantity of honey plants exists, in season or throughout the year, within the economical flight range of the foragers.
