Beehive Inspection Checklist
The only way to know exactly what is going on in a beehive is to actually take a peek inside. This can be intimidating, especially to a new beekeeper, but it doesn’t have to be. And experienced beekeepers can get sidetracked by all that is going on in a hive and forget to check on things they wanted to check. Using a beehive inspection checklist can help the beginning beekeeper have confidence in the inspections and help the experienced beekeeper stay on track during inspections.
A beehive inspection checklist will also act as a record for you so you don’t have to try to remember all that you observed in the hives. This record will enable you to notice trends or patterns that are happening with your beehives. The more hives you have, the more important it is to take notes and use a beehive inspection checklist. However, even if you only have one hive, we still recommend taking notes and using a checklist every time you inspect your hive.
