Abstract:

Beekeeping is a billion dollar industry, of which honey production plays only a small part. Most beekeepers make their money with crop pollination, charging up to $120 per hive for this service. Crop growers want healthy, strong colonies. It takes a skilled beekeeper about 10 minutes to inspect a colony; the Colony Health Scanner performs the same function in about 2 minutes, and can be operated by relatively unskilled labor. The bee keeping operation with a Colony Health Scanner will be more efficient, save money, and provide healthier bees.
