Yes please do, it would be interesting to see how others get on.

My mic is permanently in a hive and I've listened to it every few days.

Mine too. I've check ...

Just to satisfy my curiosity, is anyone who bought an Apimonitor actively using it (or a different system) to monitor their bees?

One of my hives swarmed about a week ago and I was monitoring / rec ...

This rather unsurprising discovery seems to be supported by this video from Japan that was pointed out by BeeBuzz in another thread. It is quite long but worth seeing it through, it can be found here. ...

Have you found a cheap H/T sensor that can be daisy chained?

To be honest I haven't looked for that specifically. For my requirement I only need one humidity sensor but do need multiple temperatur ...

I can connect as many as I like in a daisy-chain to a PC using USB adaptor

You need to be careful here. There are quite a few of these sensors and several variants around and they are not all the ...

Excellent set up Bernhard - I like it.

Not terribly sure how you would open it without filling your living room with bees though.

Could be a great way of getting rid of unwanted visitors though ...

Well the poll has now run for 10 days and the results are summarised as follows:

Ok beeks - I need to get an idea of how many people may or may not be interested in an updated Acoustic Hive Monitor. It will be similar in operation to the Apidictor but with several fundamental diff ...

Conserving wild bees

Research suggests that bumble bee boxes have a very low success rate in actually attracting bees into them. We find that if you create an environment where first of all you can attract mice inside, such as a pile of stones, a drystone wall, paving slabs with intentionally made cavities underneath, this will increase the success rate.

Most bumble bee species need a dry space about the size a football, with a narrow entrance tunnel approximately 2cm in diameter and 20 cm long. Most species nest underground along the base of a linear feature such as a hedge or wall. Sites need to be sheltered and out of direct sunlight.

There is a spectacular display of wild bee hotels here
