Weatherproof Inspection Log

The first step to better beekeeping is keeping better records.  Here is our favorite, simple way to keep track of a hive's progress.  Keep this laminated inspection log under a brick or stone on top of the hive, or hang it from a hook on the side.  Use the industrial Sharpie to keep notes as you go and you don't have to trust your memory for the date of your last visit, queenright hives, or progress with brood and resource development.
