Open source project using Raspberry Pis and sensors to learn about the health of a bee colony by monitoring the temperature and humidity inside and outside the hive over multiple years.

The aim of the experiment is to monitor the temperature inside the cluster of a honey bee colony and to compare this with other temperatures outside the cluster,inside the hive and outside the hive.

We are a group of beekeepers based in Snowdonia, North Wales.

The system has been running since December 2010 in that time we have had a fascinating insight into the complexities of temperature profile inside a honey bee colony throughout the year. This data is available online and can be navigated through using the interactive live graph on the ‘live data' page.
