What’s the Buzz

There is an interesting article in The Economist (March 28th Edition) about a new app that ‘listens’ to the sound of a hive and can diagnose various issues including the presence of hive beetle, a serious honeybee pest, parasitic mites and “foulbrood”, a bacterial infection which can destroy bee colonies.

 

A very interesting read if you get the time.

 

This follows on the heels of another app, BeeScanning, where you can take a photo of your bees, submit the picture to their website where they use an AI engine to scan for and identify Varroa mite levels.
