This is a great project. Let’s help crowsource this!   Broodmapper.com is an interactive environment where you can learn to inspect honey bee colonies. Reed Johnson at The Ohio State University OARDC is investigating Miticide and Fungicide Interactions and their effect on honey bee brood survival and development. As a part of that study, Broodmapper.com is used to determine the cell contents using photographs of combs from experimental colonies. Anyone can volunteer to help identify the cell contents in these photographs and hone their skills in inspecting colonies.
