Why should beekeepers use a beekeeping management app?
Blending together the traditional approaches with modern techniques can have great advantages in helping both beginner and experienced beekeepers run their operations more efficiently. Nowadays, beekeepers can interact with their hives on a whole other level than a few decades ago, having on their side an apiary management app. Unlike a notebook, where information sometimes gets lost, an app has endless space where a beekeeper can add as much data as he/she wants, to better understand the full process of his/her inspections.
