Tunisia: Beekeepers abuzz over smart device that gives early warning


Elias Chebbi inspected a beehive in a field in Tunisia, minutes after a buzz on his phone warned him of a potential problem. Chebbi has two of the sensors, entirely produced in Tunisia by the only company of its kind in North Africa. Today, Khaled Bouchoucha, 34-year-old CEO of manufacturer Beekeeper Tech, says the sensors gather "a huge amount of information on the bees' yield and the threats they face". Beekeeper Tech has sold over 1,000 of the systems, mostly in Tunisia and neighbouring countries. The data it collects also tells beekeepers about the health and productivity of each hive, its resistance to changes in climate.
