Re: Record Keeping for Beeks
I think you could take the millions of credit cards / debit cards that are thrown into the land fill and swipe the info into the card for what you want the condition to be. You could almost use the brand of card as an identifier and then place the appropriate card on the hive. You could also punch holes in the card as a visual identifier. The number of holes equals the condition. Blasting through an apiary you could swipe the cards on your cell phone and have an accurate inventory of all conditions.
