Beehives go smart in Victoria, Australia
Beehives go smart in Victoria to aid the detection of Mites from imports and shipping. The trial is to provide effectively an early warning system to protect Victoria bees.
Just launched in Port of Melbourne in Victoria artificially intelligent beehives with camera are being installed at Victorian ports to rapidly detect pests as they arrive on ships. These brightly coloured purple hive are solar-powered, enabling devices embedded to potentially detect the awful Varroa destructor, a mite that feeds on honey bees.
