Welcome to colonymonitoring.com!

Today, commercial and back yard beekeepers find their honey bee
colonies stressed by pests,
parasites and pesticides. Manual inspections are necessary but
disturb the bees. Current technology
has the potential to provide
the information needed to manage
bees productively without the need
for disruptive manual inspections,
and new devices are now becoming
available commercially.
Here beekeepers will find links to web resources that address the various aspects of monitoring technology. We expect this website will hasten the day when the robust honey bee monitoring capabilities we envision are readily available. Our vision is that in the near future, all beekeepers will have ready access to the technology needed to provide early warnings of colony health issues, enabling them to optimize care of their bees.
