5 MOST COMMON REASONS TO HAVE BEE HIVE SCALE
Influence of plants on nectar
From the hive scale, you will be able to determine the effect on bees of plants that grown in their vicinity.
Weight of honey in the hive
Honey production is one of the main goals of every beekeeper. The ability to determine the amount of honey that bees produce is essential in beekeeping. It is important to take it away so that they don’t swarm, but it is also important to leave them some supplies so that they can survive the winter. Observing during one season will help you to make the next season easier and more successful, both in terms of bee health and honey yield.
The most problematic period for bees is the winter. 20-40% of bee colonies are killed worldwide each year. If you know the weight of the hive, you can find out from the hive scale how much stock the bees have in the hive so that you can feed them before the winter.
When bees swarm, the hive weight will give you an immediate signal that this has happened. The swarm usually sits on a nearby tree and you have a few hours to catch it before it decides to fly away. An online hive weight informs you of an unusual weight loss and you know you have to go catch a swarm or check the hive.
Healthy and efficient hives
It is very important to understand the health of bees and their performance compared to other hives: if you have several hive weights, you can make a very precise selection of the best hives and separate those that lag behind. This way you can choose the best genetic material and you will do much better during the next season.
