Precision beekeeping allows to monitor bees' living conditions by equipping beehives with sensors. The data recorded by these hives can be analyzed by machine learning models to learn behavioral patterns of or search for unusual events in bee colonies. One typical target is the early detection of bee swarming as apiarists want to avoid this due to economical reasons. Advanced methods should be able to detect any other unusual or abnormal behavior arising from illness of bees or from technical…

There was a linear heating process before swarming initiated and a specific location with the most apparent temperature increase was identified, which lies at the bottom part of the bee space between the wall of the hive and the first frame, which was towards the nest entrance.
