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.

  • Donated but didn’t receive email

    I donated using the link on Facebook and using PayPal but didn’t receive an email to download the app. Is there a wait period or did I do something incorrectly?

    Shane, I wish there was a way to automate this process, but the reality is that it took some time before PayPal let us know you'd placed an order, and then we need to load your email address in to our Bee Health Guru database so that the app will work. Once we've got your email address in our database you'll be sent an email with instructions on how to get and install the app. Please follow the instructions carefully, especially about using the very same email to reset the password for the Bee Health Guru.
    Thank you very much indeed for supporting this project!

      Good information to know. I just submitted my donation as well and while I have promptly received the confirmation from Paypal and a link to change my forgotten password, I was expecting to see something providing me with the golden information to your app as well.

      Since I have both an Iphone 10x max and a 7 inch samsung android tablet would it be better to use on the larger format screen, or will I be able to put on both and get side by side readings, I also was considering using an external lavalier mic I have with the samsung tablet to get better placement. I assume the app will have a place to make those notifications since you had mentioned something to someone regarding his screened bottom boards.

        Kenclogger We're working on this. The app stores require us to input the approved users and tester. We can provide the app in both Android and Apple forms. Your tablet should work, but may not have GPS, if it's only got wireless. If it has cellular service, then you should have GPS.

            Sfeeny00, so sorry that I did not follow up here. YES!!! You can go to our online community homepage at www.BeeHealth.guru and at bottom right there is a "Donate" button. This is not an automated process - we have to receive word from PayPal which can take several hours, and then we have to enter you in our backend database before we send you the email with all the details on how to get the app. Thank you for your support!

                Sfeeny00, well that's not right. Please email us at [email protected] from the email that you'll be using.
