Start of indoor wintering
On 5 of December 20 bee colonies are placed in special wintering building (Strazdu iela 2, Jelgava, Latvia) for indoor wintering in controlled environment.
Involvement of private beekeeper
On 3 of December bee colony wired temperature measurement system was installed in one private apiary in Ozolnieki region, Brankas, Latvia.
10 colonies are involved in measurements of colony activity during winter period.
On 1 of December first prototype of WEB system for bee colonies temperature measurement monitoring is published online.
System is accessible here: http://188.8.131.52/itapic_web/Default.aspx
Now there are measurements of past winter periods, real time data of colonies of one private beekeeper (LAT_003) and in near future (LAT_001) will demonstrate measurements of colonies in wintering building.
