Description

Why would anyone need to keep a notebook about their beehives? Does it really matter?

While even experienced beekeepers can learn from hive notes, it is an even more important part of beekeeping for beginners. Good hive notes promote a better understanding of the dynamics of the hive. Beginning to keep proper beekeeping records (no mental notes!) is one means of assuredly improving your beekeeping success. This means fewer bee losses, more honey production, and better broods.

We'll discuss the why, what, and how of beekeeping records. Then you can decide what's right for you.
