MAJOR REVISIONS, 2021

Bee Health Guru KS has been extensively revised. We have added user functions such as the ability to save your own records, map the locations of your colonies, produce a map of the health of your colonies by each of the eight health factors such as queen status, presence or absence of mites, foul brood, etc.

The mapping function is based on visual inspections. For the first time ever, each user can contribute to a global database of colony health variables in real-time, as soon as the visual inspection reports are uploaded with the acoustic recordings.

We are still asking for help with respect to calibrating the acoustics. We received thousands of recordings, but many were of poor quality or submitted without any inspection reports. For 2021, we are asking our community of citizen scientists to use a recommended external microphone - and please, don't sing or talk while recording your colonies.

Everyone who donated and received a copy of bee health guru ks should be able to download the 2021 upgrade, if you use the same email by which you received the original copy. If you donate again, you will be providing funds to add more user-friendly options.

If you belong to a bee association, consider organizing a group effort to help us plot bee health problems in real time and to continue to calibrate the app.

Thank you for your continued support. We are adding training videos and will start hosting live virtual meetings to meet with and talk to users about our app.
