Hive Weigh Scale for weighing bee hives. This scale is a hand held portable scale specifically for weighing bee hives easily and quickly.
- Is less than 6 inches long and 1 1/4 inches wide
- Has a 12 inch long strap and hook
- Small enough to fit in your pocket
- The hook will “hook” under the handle pocket on the end of standard wooden Langstroth style beehive boxes
- The capacity of the Hive Weigh is 110 pounds or 50 kilos
- Battery is included
To use push the on button, place the hook under the handle pocket on the lowest super or box, pull directly up until lifted just off the hive stand. The weight showing on the Hive Weigh scale readout will be approximately 1/2 of the total weight of the hive. The Hive Weigh will shut off automatically in about 2 minutes.
The hive may be weighed and any time after that, a day or a few days. You will have accurate data to determine if the hive is gaining or losing weight. This data is especially valuable during honey flows to see how quickly the bees are filling supers without opening the hives and disturbing your bees.
