From some time now. a group of amazing folks is trying to take over the risk of bee colony collapse.

This is an important project, that deserves your support!

PS: we a re wrangling with the idea to interview the team: stay tuned!

The Open Source Beehives project wants to crowd-source a solution to the bee colony collapse problem – and we want you to be a part of it!

We’ve designed two downloadable, printable beehives: the Colorado Top Bar, and the Barcelona Warré. These hives aim to prioritise bee colony health, make beekeeping more accessible, and will ultimately allow you to log and study the health of your colony.

Your contribution will help us develop sensors to enhance our hives, connecting them to the Internet to log data about what is causing the bees to disappear around the world. This data can be used to study colony health, build hard evidence against the causes of the problem, and generate policy change and informed solutions moving forward.
