    How did you go about procuring a hive? Our lot might be interested.

    Our Science Technician made them - had to order them from China !!!
    In regards to the Cam, we already have one inside one of the hives, just a matter of hooking it up to something - problem is the hives are quite a way into our nature reserve so power and wireless signal are the problem. We like a challenge.

    If a cam is on anything in my book, it's interesting.

    Lighting may be a problem... entrance and exit might be quite funky though.

    Solar power? Go really eco-friendly?

    Try RFC1149? Might need to reduce your packet size though.

    No bee's here, lots of wasps though, had to attack 5 so far with the RAID can so far this week, they seem to like my server cabinet for some reason, maybe the low-res hum attracts them?

    Until recently we had a regular visit from a swarm of bees looking to make a home in out Drama studio. For several tears n a row we would come in during the holiday to be greeted with a very active colony. Toward the end of the holiday we always expected masses of dead bees on the floor of the Drama studio [and we were not disappointed]

    I doubt that we will have the same issue this year, however, as we have had modern windows installed [their main route into Drama] Perhaps they will still gain access through the vents though?

    Surely they should be avoiding your server rack with the quantity of RAID in it
