As many people have been noticing this past decade, there is a strange and frightening thing happening to honey bee populations all over the world. Check out this great honey bee tracking project from Max Justicz built from a bunch of great Adafruit components.
This year I decided to do some cool experiments with honey bees. This project uses 12 temperature probes placed throughout a beehive to track the movement of honey bees over the course of several weeks. The project is completely solar powered, completely weatherproof, and can log months of data onto a 1GB memory card. I wouldn’t have been able to build this without the parts supplied by the bee keeping club. Thanks, Magnus!
