I like listening to UF's "Two bees in a podcast" podcasts. I just thought I'd share this with other people interested in this. I have five hives at one of the farms at this time, plus a couple of wild ones on dead trees. I also recommend the UF Bee Research and Extension Lab, which has a lot of resources for bee keepers, including classes and courses at all levels on their Bee College, some of them virtual and available from anywhere in the world.

Australia using AI hives to monitor and control varroa mite

The “smart” hive, which was positioned at the edge of Townsville port on Monday, is expected to attract bees carrying the deadly varroa mite that have hitched a ride to Australia on cargo ships.
The hives have two cameras “top and bottom that scan each bee going in and out”.

Whenever a bee enters the hive, it is scanned to see if it is carrying the mite, Murugan said. “And then once it has found a mite it will send an SMS alert.”

This will help authorities respond to any infected bees before the mite can spread. ... arroa-mite
