Biologists from Kew Gardens in London started testing with a micro transmitter designed to monitor bee behavior. The objective of the tracker is to help scientists better understand the cause of the destruction of the insects and how to reverse this situation.

Eight millimeters high and 4.8 mm wide, the equipment consists of a chip identifier accessed by radio frequency which is glued to bees. In tests, the researchers spread receptors that read the data from the path between a beehive and a flower.
