It was amazing to watch the data come in. Our club could see daily nectar gains and nightly evaporation as the bees made it into honey. Now we really know when the main flow started, how big it was and when it really ended. Very surprising, as the old experts would have told you the dates were different. Then the late season goldenrod boosted our hives and we could see the gain and when it ended. The information is invaluable. The Solutionbee system was easy to install, painless to operate and their tech support is friendly and responsive if you need it.

Southern California wild bees well documented!
My bee club, HoneyLove, offered to buy this hive scale for me so I could be part of the BeeInformedPartnership Hive Scale national survey project. I am keeping treatment-free, foundationless, feral honey bees in Los Angeles and the colony on the scale has had wonderful success. The cues offered by the graphing and tracking of the scale are informative for figuring out various issues associated with growth, weather, and forage. When I have encountered problems with my use of the hardware, Rafael Cabrera, my B-Ware rep has been very responsive and helpful---he has been available by phone, too, when I was stuck in a problem. Great product and company service!!! !!

A MUST HAVE in your apiary
An electronic hive scale monitoring your colony 24X7 will give you valuable insights into what is happening in your apiary. Has the honey flow began? Is it over? Is it time to feed? Ive worked with a number of hive scales in recent years, and this Solution Bee model is one of the best in terms of cost and ease of operation. Since you can collect the data with your Bluetooth enabled smartphone / tablet, there is no need to pay for a monthly cellular plan with this model. An added bonus is that you can opt in to forward your scale data to Bee Informed Partnership. Highly recommended for the hobby and commercial beekeeper alike.

Great product!!!! Amazing Technology
We purchased two of these scales last summer initially and absolutely love them. We have been able to see the fall flows start, record hive weight as we feed our hives this fall , witness the coming and going of foraging bees down to the tenth of a pound....it will be an invaluable asset in the years to come. We plan on purchasing at least one for every one of our bee yards. We would give it 5 stars for the Product but only 4 for the Android Phone and PC applications which can be difficult to use as the documentation and instruction is lacking.
