The electronic scale honey bee colony as a management and research tool


Bee Science 1(1): 40-47
The electronic scale honey bee colony as a management and research tool
Techniques are presented for interfacing a modern industrial electronic balance with a personal computer or data logger for the purpose of recording honeybee colony and hive weights on a regular time interval. Weight changes for an August day, week and the entire month are given for a normal Langstroth hive located in the Sonoran desert near Tucson, Arizona, with minimal management during nectar influx.
