bee-my.world

We welcome you to our brandnew website!

Bee-my.world is a platform for the networking of beekeepers and friends from all over the world, who work on their problems and questions in expert workshops. Here an exchange exchange has emerged which reflects a philosophy that is a fundamental building stone of our world. In the first place the bee will be standing. We are looking forward to intensive and numerous participation – because this is the only way to fill this idea with life! We wish you a lot of fun and hope, we can give you a few thoughts.

You will see that it is fun to follow us here. It should be uncomplicated and we succeeded. Today we have activated the following portals:

From 1.10. we plan the online beekeeper courses, which you should already register on the ticket, so that we can allocate the participants accordingly.

What moves us

You can see what moves us and what we are doing. We work with a sensible concept, which leads us step by step to solutions, which give us all added value. This includes our technologies, our services and our platforms. As you read below, you will understand the purpose of our mission. We want to achieve peacefully, that understanding for our environment increases and our natural relationship with flora and fauna is secured. Only in this way can we counteract the approaching catastrophes.

International bee-Conference in Berlin

At the first International bee-Conference we were represented as bee-my.world with four employees. It is a pity that we have nevertheless not been able to hear all the contributions. This, of course, everyone has experienced. With a capacity of 400 seats, only the fastest ones could get access. We have considered how it can be made possible that everything is accessible to everyone – without time, without costs and without waste of resources. Our solution is the online bee-Conference.

What we have heard in Berlin is summarized here.

In the beginning was the bee…

For anyone who loves nature, beekeeping is a sensible hobby and possibly even a meaningful profession. It provides animal lovers, farmers, scientists and researchers with a comprehensive field of activity, which urgently needs greater attention.

Media report the problems of bees by environmental pollution and lack of biodiversity. Beekeepers, in cooperation with farmers, help to counteract these problems. Scientists use the experiences of beekeepers for their work, and researchers are developing strategies to combat bee pests and diseases.

We have set ourselves the task of bringing together the experience gained from the work of all those involved. We want to help centralize communication so that everyone can benefit from the knowledge of all.

It is not very difficult to convey information; but to package them in such a way that they become a campaign that embraces society is an ambition. The quiet buzzing we already have in terms of a sustainable form of life and ‘back to nature’ must become an unmistakable sound that disturbs us so long until we finally observe it and change something in our way of life. We want to raise children’s awareness of environmental behavior in the kindergarten and at school, so that the earth remains a living space with quality. This spark will pass from the children to the families, and our campaign has served its purpose.

Everyone who makes a small contribution helps all the bee-friends at work and protects the bees and our environment. We would be delighted if you could use our services and hope for a lively participation.

Concepts

Simplify my office

The road to implementing our ambitious goals is called ‘simplify-my-office’ (smo). smo means to deal with a few persons a task in a fraction of the time that is usually required. Through the combination of open source and own programming, an infrastructure was created, with which all participants at the same time can carry out their work clearly and efficiently. This infrastructure is the basis for every computer user, with the help of which senseless ‘time-eaters’ were eliminated during daily PC handling. Since large projects are time-consuming and require many interdependent processes, this time has to be reduced to a necessary minimum; because time is life … By the synchronization of the parties and the automation of many steps in the administration, this possibility has been created by a genius programmer. We only use applications that are easy to manage even for little experienced computer users, and lead through videos and easily formulated help (tutorials) through the pages.

Portals

Diaspora

The topic of ‘easing’ is also to counteract the network obscurity of the users. Many users feel insecure about concerns about data misuse. Bee-by.world also has a solution for this. Freedom in the network means:

No central server – Instead of collecting the data of all users on giant servers from large organizations, local servers (“pods”) can be deployed anywhere in the world. You decide on which Pod you are signing up to – maybe it is your local pod – and you can connect seamlessly with diaspora *. Anonymity – You can be at diaspora *, whoever you want. Unlike many other networks, you do not have to use your real identity. You are looking for the way you interact with whom. There are no limits to the imagination. In addition, diaspora * is a free software that gives you the freedom to use it as you wish. Privacy – On diaspora * your data is your property. You do not assign any rights to any company or any third party that could abuse them. At diaspora *  your friends, habits and contents are your thing … not ours! In addition, you choose who can see what you share by using aspects. Source: https://diasporafoundation.org/ In our opinion, this is the right way to move around the net. How it works, you can see in this video

Ticket

In order to help you, we ask you to create a ticket. For short-term processing, a ticket is more efficient than an e-mail. We can therefore more purposefully respond to your questions and wishes. An individual ticket has to be created for each help topic in order to optimally support the different groups of people and to direct your request to the appropriate employee. All of this saves unnecessary forwarding and polling. The ticket platform also supports the direct chat with the bee-my.world team.

efficient processing, fast topic allocation, short dialogue

Directory

Our directory is a list of alternative facilities that can be complemented by you. Here you can find everything to an environmentally conscious lifestyle – from village shops to ecological events or beekeeper courses.
Directory without search engine

Multishop

For every beekeeper it is possible to set up our own shop. This is not about the motto ‘geiz is cool’, but a fair offer. The minimum price for 500 grams of honey must therefore be appropriate.

Shopping, selling, picking

For our own shop we need a logo and a short vita of the beekeeper, as well as a price list. If you do not want to have your own shop, you can sell your items as commissioned items via our multishop (Bazar). As can be seen on the following example pictures, each article can be personalized. For this we charge a small fee. A short vita of the beekeeper is required and a quality proof for the honey (or for Bio honey a corresponding certificate).

Blog

We will publish in our blogs all the information that can assist you with your work with the bees. You can find here events, advice on current questions, reports and much more.

Reports, publications, conclusions

Wiki

We have opened a wiki to provide everyone with a wealth of information without having to click through Google. Many links are stored here.

the fast lexicon

Forum

A bee-my.world forum provides the possibility to exchange information and discuss all topics related to the bee. Experiences, opinions and advice are welcome here. Only with your help this platform will it be filled with life.

Opinions, information, discussions

Projects and Products

Tec-Hives

The Tec Hives are pure measuring stations. All measured values ​​recorded by the sensors are recorded three times per hour on the SD card and sent to the BMW server between 23-2 clock. From here, the cluster collects the data and calculates the population dynamics using algorithms. The processed data is sent back to the server. Using the monitoring app on the server, the beekeeper then sees a visualized representation of the data in the form of interactive diagrams – which should help the user to record the operations at a glance.

What is a measuring station?

Sponsorships

Here we explain sponsorship: We generally make a difference between active and passive sponsors. Active ones participate with 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% in a beehive (prey) and are therefore also responsible for their care and maintenance. A bhive can have up to four sponsors. Passive sponsorships are donations, with which one is financially involved, but not actively cooperating. An active sponsorship means taking responsibility. Responsibility not only for the bees, but for a piece of nature by helping to preserve the biodiversity and thereby ensure the pollination of useful and wild plants. You learn as a sponsor to deal with the bees and appreciate their importance. After one year, you can decide whether you want to renew your sponsorship, or have your own beehives.

Eh Da-surfaces

Eh Da areas are areas that are not used in the landscape, which are neither used for agriculture, nor for ecology, and which are also not relevant for settlement needs – they are ‘eh da’. The  utilization of these areas is to be designed for the habitat of flower-seeking insects, also the wild and honey bees, in order to create a higher biodiversity. The IfA (Institute of Agricultural Ecology) has conducted a nationwide potential study from 2012-14, stating that the existing amount of Eh Da areas amounts to 3-6% of the total area of Germany, which has a little diverse to poor floral condition. Eh Da areas are mostly small-scale, but can still occupy a significant percentage of an agricultural landscape. First of all, the municipalities are in demand. Where can Eh Da surfaces be created?

Children and the apiary

Bee-my.world will carry out school projects to bring children to the bees and their importance. There are bee projects in many schools, which we would like to support with a kit for insect hotels. From the rest of the beehives produced by us, we put these kits together to bring the idea of sustainability into account. The initiative “Children help bees”, which was established in the district of Weilheim / Schongau in Oberbayern, has been an inspiration for us. We would like to receive ideas from you and would be glad if you give us tips on which schools would like to participate.

Monitoring

The bee monitoring system from bee-my.world includes a lot more than what you know about these systems so far. It is clear that the status and behavior of bees in and around their beehives is visualized. How extensive are these observations and which ones are really useful? The bee-my.world monitoring reflects a large part of the microcosm of a beehive. With the help of cameras the behavior of the bees is kept under different and changing conditions. The measurement of data on humidity, temperature, gas development, etc. in the beehive shows how the behavior of the bees changes in relation to this. The pest infestation is also determined

Alternative Projects

What are the possibilities for us to provide stability through alternative environmental projects and thus for our quality of life? People ask themselves this question whenever a direct threat threatens their comfort. In our opinion, it is time to make this issue the guide of our daily life. In our blog ‘Minimalism’, we are talking about little things that have a big impact if we only pay attention to them. If we look at the bees that are the focus here, there are already a number of alternative projects that can make the habitat of these important farm animals safer. One such alternative project would be, for example, urban dairy.

Campaigns

bee-Conference

In order to make beekeeping conferences and symposia less complicated, bee-my.world has launched the web-based bee-conference. Less expensive means no costs for travel, overnight and catering and no unnecessary environmental pollution. Experts from the fields of science, research and thematic areas of apiary will hold their presentations here and provide them for the web bee-Conference. Bee-my.world creates the material and organizes this online bee-Conference as a prototype for all those who, as future initiators of such events, want to make their contributions accessible to everyone at any time and for all interested parties. Our team will film interviews with speakers in which the contributions will be presented – as is known – with slides. These will be published in a kind of ‘pre-conference’ so that questions can be asked. The material is then included in the main conference, including the answers. This way it becomes a ‘vivid’ conference and not a passive lecture series.

Online courses for beekeepers

Bee-my.world will offer online video beekeeper courses for beekeepers in cooperation with beekeepers and / or clubs. This module is a supplement (not a replacement) for commercial training, and for hobbyists who have to allocate their time. This provides comprehensive information and training tools 365 days a year, around the clock.

beekeeper-world-wide

beekeeper-world-wide is a campaign that bee-my.world has initiated to connect all beekeepers world-wide. Only in this way can we experience the problems of all and seek solutions together. We collect all information from beekeepers – from photos of their beehives with their history, bee stock, traits, pests to experiences with the Varroamilbe. Everything is published at bee-my.world and – if necessary translated – for a successful exchange of experience.

Subjects

The Varroa Mite

The species is distinguished by a striking sexual dimorphism. The males are considerably smaller and narrower, of a rather triangular-drop shape, their legs are significantly longer in relation to their body size. They are weaker sclerotized and pale yellow. 80% of all varro-families are female, only they leave the breed honeycomb and appear with it, while the males remain there after the copulation and die. As with most mites, the body of the varroamilbe is divided into two sections called Idiosoma and Gnathostoma.
The gnathostoma, on which the mouth-tools sit, is relatively small and displaced on the abdominal side between the hips (coxes) of the first pair of legs, it is not visible when viewed from above. The Idiosoma is covered on the backside by an undivided, strongly sclerotized shield, which is dyed red-brown. On the abdomen there are several red-brown ventral shields connected by seams. The female backplate is transversally oval and much wider than long, it is densely covered with bristles (Setae)

Bees Deaths

Bienensterben is a topic that is already controversial because of its conceptuality. We are talking about the fact that bees die without we can do much about it. There is surprisingly little consensus in the question of the origin. The reasons that need to be taken into account are manifold. Climate change, pests, pesticides and the lack of biodiversity are mentioned as potential factors for the phenomenon of bee mortality. It is probably the interplay of all listed components. Bienensterben historically: catastrophic losses of the western honey bees have occurred throughout history at different times and around the world. For instance, in the United States, in 1868, Kentucky was the birthplace of important bee-mortals, as well as in many places in the early 20th century and again in the 1960s and 1970s. More than 100 years ago, considerable losses of bees in the United States were attributed to the “Isle of Wight” disease, which was also referred to as beesworm syndrome. This syndrome occurred for the first time on the Isle of Wight, an island off the south coast of England, and some experts claimed that they had almost exterminated the native British subspecies, the dark European bee, although these bees frequently remained elsewhere in Europe ,
Leading insect researchers at the beginning of the twentieth century tried to find out what was behind this bee death, and in 1921 the cause was found: a mite attacking the tracheae (tracheal silage). However, the symptoms that these mites cause do not match the symptoms observed in the bees. Recent biennodes cases: Most headlines have caused bee bugs with commercially held honeybees. During the winter season 2002/03 there were unusually high losses. An average of 30% of all peoples have been killed. In 2006, many beekeepers in the US found that most of the bees had disappeared when they returned to their beehives. In this context colony collapse disorder (CCD) was used for the first time. The stocks of many other bee species worldwide have also declined over the last 50 years. Since these bees live in the wild and are not kept in beehives, their disappearance was less visible. (Source: The Bee, Noah Wilson-Rich) Many treatment methods of diseases and pests are proposed, but a holistic view is hardly to be found. Only the proponents of all-natural beekeeping take the complexity of the whole. Learn more about pests and diseases that threaten the bees.

Biodiversity

Biodiversity or biodiversity is defined as “variability among living organisms of any origin, including land, marine and other aquatic ecosystems, and the ecological complexes to which they belong, according to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) “. (Source: Wikipedia) Many animal and plant species of the agricultural landscape have become rare. This decline in biodiversity has been documented in numerous scientific studies and covers a wide variety of organisms – flowering plants, bees, butterflies or many birds. What can be done against this loss of biodiversity? There are a variety of measures, for example the designation of nature reserves or certain,
mostly extensive, agricultural practices. In order to create more healthy habitat for the bees, we want the farmers to find more flowering strips in which honey and wild bees can still find their food during the summer. Monocultures, e.g. endless rape fields, weaken the animals and make them susceptible to pest infestation. The municipalities should plan to grow more gently than in the past, for example, on gyms and road bumps (Eh Da areas). And also in private gardens one should attach importance to such a planting and do without plant protection products if possible. The topic Eh Da-surfaces is explained in our blog.
