How To: Apiary

Apiaries

aka Bee Yards



Management Actions

The main view of the application is the Apiaries view, which lists your apiaries. There are 3 basic management actions for apiaries:

  • Add
  • Edit
  • Delete

Add An Apiary

From the Apiaries view, tap the icon on the navigation bar or tap the main menu icon and then select  Add Apiary.

Complete the Add Apiary view form by providing the following information.

Name

Choose a friendly, recognizable name for the apiary, for example: "Kathleen's Orchard". The name must be between 3 and 16 characters long.


Location

The location of an apiary. Enter something as specific as a street address or simply a Zip Code.

We recommend using a Zip Code unless you are managing a huge number of apiaries.
When the information is completed the "OK" button will appear on the right of the navigation bar.
Once you OK the information, you are returned to the Apiaries view where you will see your new apiary listed.

Edit An Apiary

From the Apiaries view, tap on the Apiary you want to change.

Tap the Apiary view's menu icon and then select  Edit Apiary.

The Edit Apiary view is identical in every way to the Add Apiary view. You may rename and relocate the apiary:

Deleting One Or More Apiaries

On the Apiaries view (main screen) tap the navigation menu icon and select  Delete Apiaries.

The Delete Apiaries view presents you with a list of all apiaries. Tap each apiary you wish to delete and then tap "OK". You will be asked to confirm the action.

 Any beehives in an Apiary are also deleted, and deletion is irreversible!
