Above is a post by Jimbeekeeper,he asks a very good question regards should beekeeping be going more high-tec?I think temperature of the brood is an indication ~22 no brood ~ 35 brood. So through the use of a digital thermometer and probe (possibly inserted year-round).
But that is getting hi-tech or should we be going hi-tech? After all the Victorians always strived for the latest gadgets and fads, has much in beekeeping really changed since then!
I know from a chat with a forum member that he/she rang a couple of local group members regards giving an OA treatment and was given very short change from some.
Does beekeeping need to move forward? should the younger beekeepers being doing stuff that maybe a few older members are loath to change?
We dont think anything of treating our dogs and cats for worms and flees today,should we be doing the same for our bees regards parasites?
