Monitoring

The purpose of monitoring is to determine how many wild beehives are settled by bees and to keep a record of the location of the beehives. At the same time, bee families are evaluated for their health and preventive measures are taken to eliminate pathogens.

As a basis for monitoring, we assumed that bees in the forest live without human interference in the sense that they are not taken advantage of and  people do not interfere in their biology. The only invasive procedure is to prevent the development of varroa destructor by monitoring the degree of infestation using alcohol method, and in the event of disease symptoms, mite control activities are undertaken using methods typical for organic beekeeping.
