Abstract:A photoelectric counter was developed for single-frame observation beehives. Glass tubes protruding in opposite directions from the center partition separated the outgoing from the incoming honey bees, Apis mellifera L. Each bee that passed through the counter in each direction was recorded on a digital counter. A single time lapse camera periodically recorded the data from both counters.
