NOTE: Supply chain issues has presently made the BroodMinder-W2 unavailable. Currently we are not certain of future availability, we are currently being quoted August 2021 for the critical parts needed. We apologize for the inconvenience and recommend the BroodMinder-W in its place.
The BroodMinder-W2 is our most accurate scale. It uses 4 force sensors to weigh the entire hive and sits on top of the bottom board for fast, convenient installation, even with hive pallets. The slatted rack design prevents the bees from building burr comb, allowing the scale to be placed above the brood chamber.
