Kasiisi Project and Broodminders – Every Hive Counts

The Kasiisi Project is the first and currently only program in Africa (that bee in the middle of the map is us!) to join Broodminders – the Citizen Science Project that seeks to monitor hive conditions all over the world.

Humidity Readings from a Forest Edge “Bee Fence” Hive

Broodminders are placed in the hives and constantly record temperature and humidity. This information is regularly downloaded onto tablets and then uploaded to the cloud, where it becomes available to everyone engaged in the project.

We have installed Broodminders in hives on our farm and have partnered with Bee Keeping for Human-Elephant Conflict Mitigation and Rural Income Enhancement Project to also monitor conditions in the forest edge hives that make up one of their elephant deterring  “beehive fences”.
