It seems you can take the same RFID trackers meant for pallets in warehouses and superglue them onto an Internet of Bees to track their behavior.

Apparently, no bees were harmed in the making of the IoB - Internet of Bees, but the ecologists did have to chill the bees to make them cold and slow in order to glue them with their new RFID equipment. It's like mini Cyborg-Honeybees. Just hope they don't mutate and come back to sting the scientists performing this experiment. I wouldn't want to see a Terminator Bee come about!
