You will need at least one smartphone. After that, it’s up to you. Some users have every worker with a phone, others have one phone per crew.

Do I need to scan each hive every time I'm in the yard?
Retract dropdownExpand dropdown

Nope! BeeTrack uses GPS coordinates to automatically merge hives in the same location into a yard. For typical activities like feeding or treatment, a single report can easily be assigned to all hives using the app. Beyond that, the number of hives you choose to scan depends on what you want to report.
