Labelling the sample

What you need to include on the sample

The following information should be written on the sample:

  • The Beekeeper Registration Number (e.g. D0001), followed by a forward slash (/), and then a code number chosen for the hive (e.g. A1). The result will look something like D0001/A1. If a plastic bag is used, the outside of the bag should be marked with this code using a marking pen
  • For a frame sample, the information (e.g. D0001/A1) should be written on a small piece of paper and put into the plastic bag before tying the bag off.
