The Challenge

Honeybees are insects of large economic value and provide a vital service to agriculture by pollinating a variety of crops. In addition, bees provide us with valuable products such as honey, beeswax, propolis, bee venom, etc. Monitoring of honeybee colony health, population, productivity, and environmental conditions affecting the colony health have always been exceedingly difficult tasks in apiculture. Research has shown that even small deviations (by more than 2°C) from the optimal temperatures have a significant influence on the development of the brood and the health of adult bees.

The Solution

The latest advancements in temperature monitoring technologies have finally lead to economically feasible applications in beekeeping. Continuous data gathering and analysis can be used to monitor individual beehives. Aranet wireless monitoring systems offer: Wireless temperature, humidity and CO2 monitoring in large areas, with just one base station that can support 1-100 wireless sensors within line-of-sight range of 3km/1.9mi; Receiving alerts via phone or e-mail for critical sensor readings; Simple and quick installation; Cost-effective solutions with included data analysis software Optimised UI/UX for desktop and mobile use; Operating as a safe, private network with an embedded local web-server that’s not dependent on any third party service provider.

Operational Impact
  • [Data Management - Real Time Data]
    By using Aranet wireless monitoring systems the researchers gained valuable real-time data about the temperature of the brood nest, overall health, and development of the bees.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Operation]
    Centralized data aggregation during the testing process helped researchers save time and resources, as they could simultaneously view data from different beehives.
  • [Efficiency Improvement - Productivity]
    In addition, exaMining historical data helped the beekeepers make process optimization and help improve the productivity of the bees.
