Save The Bees Campaign Takes To Kickstarter For Help

<span style="font-family: georgia, asics gel nimbus donna palatino;”>Kickstarter, the crowd funding website that has helped get all manner of creative projects off the ground, from new technologies to movies to video games to even video game consoles, has now turned its attention to helping save honeybees. The Save the Honey Bees Project in Dallas-Forth Worth, Air Jordan 4 Retro Texas aims to raise $6,000 in order to gather information about bee populations kept by beekeepers using off-the-shelf technology and electronic sensors.

Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a much bigger problem in the United States than it is here in New Zealand, so the project’s founder, Barry Litherland, hopes that the information gathered from the technologically advanced beehives he plans to set up will go some way to understanding the problem and preventing it from getting any worse.

<span style="font-family: georgia, Womens Air Jordan 5 palatino;”>When the hives are assembled, they will be outfitted with a bee counter at the hive entrance and at least one temperature and humidity sensor inside the hive. Each hive will have a computer attached to it to control and monitor the sensors, Authentic UGA Jersey store this data, and transfer it to the project website and other test equipment.

As Litherland explains;

  • For instance, the sensors should be able to show that the bees respond to the presence of the beekeeper and his/her smoker during visits to check the hive health and honey production. My hope is that we might learn a few new nuances about bees that will assist in nursing the mega-population back to a thriving species.

    Barry admits that his project is currently small-scale, Denver Nuggets but if it’s a success then there would be little reason for it not to expand in the future. He also makes a point of mentioning that everything he is putting together is open source, meaning that others can learn from and possibly even improve upon his work.

    <span style="font-family: georgia, Nike Air Max 2017 Dames palatino;”>So let’s hope Barry is successful that people in the area and beyond get behind the project.

  • Just imagine the data that could be collected if this kind of project took off in urban and suburban areas all across the United States.
