The first sampling round is behind us and in the course of this, we were able to familiarize ourselves with the sampling materials and the sampling process.
The pilot study in 2022 is relatively complex and involves many different methods, that the participating beekeepers have to engage with.
Because pictures are known to say more than 1000 words, we made a video of the sampling and uploaded it to YouTube. This should serve as a supplement to the picture manual and hopefully increases the understanding of the course of the pilot study.
Since the pollen trap of the hives was still closed at the time of sampling, the pollen sampling is not included in the video, but will be added later on.
The video can be watched through the following LINK.
