    Honey Bee Management is changing. Technologies first envisioned in the 1960s are finally becoming available to both small-scale and professional beekeepers and are likely to further alter how honey bee colonies are managed. Emergent technologies cover a variety of scale hives, hive sensors, tracking systems for bees and beekeeping equipment, even systems for listening to bee colonies, with a rapidly growing assortment of apps for Smart Phones, and hive management software. Which, if any of these management systems best fits any specific beekeeper's needs, is the crucial question.
    Dr. Jerry Bromenshenk will present via webcast, an overview of what is currently available to beekeepers with recommendations for choosing appropriate devices and software. He has a Ph.D. in insect ethology (behavior) from Montana State University, 46 years of experience with honey bees, continues to teach University of Montana’s Online Master Beekeeping program, and just this past spring launched the Smart Phone based Bee Health Guru App that you’ll surely want to understand before it become mainstream.

    Additionally, association member Tommy Gamble will discuss how he constructs his own woodenware.
