Start here to learn more about scale hives. The Scale Hive Protocol is a great resource for information about tracking the honey bee nectar flow by keeping a scale hive.
Navigate under the Honeybees tab to learn more general information about bees and beekeeping. The Site Data tab will show where the current scale hives and scale hive data can be found within our Honey Bee Network.
We are trying to develop a network nationally. Currently many sites are concentrated in the Mid-Atlantic region. Some sites are historical, while others are current or just getting started. The national network is slowly growing, however.
If you think you are ready to get started, go to the Site Data tab above.
This video, Feeling the Sting of Climate Change, produced by NASA, shows the links and potential effects climate change can have on our polinators and plants.
