I'm very excited to finally realize an idea for weighing my bee hives. It only took more than a year.
I got a luggage scale last year. I finally figured out how to use it on my hives. I attached door handles to my hives, on the long sides. (sorry this picture is rotated!)
I weigh both sides and add the numbers together.
I could see how this method could be difficult as the hives get heavier and heavier!
Anyways, it is really neat to see the differences in weight between my hives and I look forward to tracking the bee "biomass" as the season progresses!
