Why track beehives (and their queens)?

SmartFarmData has a solution for the electronic identification (EID) of honey boxes. The specific solution depends on the beekeeper's objectives and requirements together with the benefits and the costs.

Below are two options for consideration. Other solutions will be developed for your individual needs.

Solution one - Hive up close:

Hive box identification - Each electronic tag has an embedded unique ID plus room for other data. The purpose is to record individual box activities, for example:

  • Date at a location

  • Harvest date

  • Warm room in date

  • Floral type

  • AFB present

  • Excluders in

  • Sugar supplement

This data is trasmitted to the office for management purposes.

Components required:

  • Electronic tag

  • Mobile phone or phone enabled tablet: the phone is the reader, data entry device and the transmitter of the data to the office.

  • Mobile app ( one per team leader and /or truck, special requirements would need to be quoted), office data management software.

Solution Two - Hive from a distance:

Hive box identification (id from a distance):

The electronic tags have an embedded unique ID. In the field, high power readers can read the IDs on all boxes within a distance of 3-5m, it is ideal for any inventory count/stocktake at yards

Low power id readers can read individual box activities for example,

  • Date at location

  • Harvest date

  • Warm room in date

  • Floral type

  • AFB present

  • Excluders in

  • Sugar supplement

The data is transmitted to the office for management purposes.

Components required:

  • Electronic Tag

  • ID reader

  • Mobile phone or tablet

  • Mobile app

One of the problems facing beekeeping today is the demand for accuate, accessable information about hives for:

  • eradication schemes

  • verification of the location of the beehives

  • recording production metrics on individual queens

  • breeding elite queens
