BeeKing - your digital beekeeping assistant
I have been beekeeping for more than 10 years and have about 40 colonies in several apiaries. For a long time, I was in search of the most convenient type of notes, because I, as an IT person, was not satisfied with paper notebooks. Notebooks can be forgotten or lost. All that remains is a phone that is always with you. I tried several other solutions until I got to BeeKing. As a result, I now see what the condition is in each apiary, which colonies are strong, which problematic, how is the queen bee doing, how much honey has been taken from each colony, how much I have fed a colony for the winter, etc. The main benefit is that all of these notes are at hand at all times, with nothing to keep in mind and aren’t forgotten or lost in the winter, even if your phone is lost.
I have been a beekeeper for 9 years and currently, I have 180 bee colonies. I like to experiment with new things, so I decided to try the BeeKing app. Until then, my notes were on sheets of paper and there was no way to make these notes more manageable. The application proved to be easy to use and it makes it easy to review each colony and apiary. With BeeKing I can also choose to take audio notes: sometimes when I want to do work faster in the apiary I can just speak my notes which are then processed on a computer. Now I can see information about my bee colonies anytime, anywhere, so I can schedule work because my phone is always up and running.
Our family business has been in beekeeping for 10 seasons currently taking care of more than 300 bee colonies. I started using the BeeKing application in the spring of 2019; until then I made notes in a paper apiary notebook. Records made in BeeKing are available on my smartphone anytime, anywhere. I see when I've been in the apiary, what I have done, and when I should schedule my next visit. My wife and I can take and view multiple notes while working in different apiaries at the same time. The traditional paper apiary notebook doesn't provide this option. It is a pleasure that 21st-century technologies are entering the beekeeping industry.
