BeeScanning saves you labor and the lives of your bees. Get aid and diagnose your hive with your smartphone. Contribute to finding healthy bees.

Version 2.0.0
Free of charge. Totally revamped, new user interface, design, logic and functions, 13 languages. Focusing on varroa alone for now, new features will come soon.

You may still encounter false varroa. Please report issues and the AI will try to improve its performance.

Use your camera to collect images from bees on the comb in your hive. An image will typically contain 200 bees. Create a collection of 10 -30 images, covering 2500 - 7500 bees. Press analyse and images are instantly sent and analysed on our servers. Analysing is done in 100 milliseconds by artificial intelligence in neural networks, NN, with deep learning technology.
Result returns in about 30 seconds and is displayed on each image and as an average for the collection. The result can be used to determine need of treatment depending on infestation level and time of the season.

Images and their metadata i.e. position, time, race of breed, will be used for displaying histograms, the search of resistance against disease and further on for developing prognoses tools.

Update: great idea not user friendly

I love the idea behind this app which is why it is a 3. The app is not user friendly, at least in my opinion. It took a while to get hives entered and now I do not see an easy way to rescan the hive. I sent a message and was given simple instructions a week later but what they said I should do was not available on my app. If this worked well it would be a solid 5 star. Maybe I am doing something wrong, but I don’t see a way to fix the issues. Thanks
I emailed asking for jig plans and got an immediate reply from Björn. I asked him about my issue above and after extensive emails I found out my issue was my ignorance. Björn showed me how to rescan and now that I know where the rescan button is (on the bottom of the screen) I can do more scans. Thank you for your time and patience. I wish I could go back and remove my first rating.

Awesome App

I love this app! I wasn’t sure if I could trust the counts at first, so I made sure to compare against alcohol washes I did. What do you know, it is perfectly accurate!!!! I no longer have to kill bees to get a mite count! My one suggestion is to add more bee races to the list provided. Simply adding one called Apis Mellifera would be suitable. Aside from that, it’s a great app.

Can’t get it open
