Social Robotic Bees to Prevent Killer Bee Attacks on Cities


We need to design tiny robotic bees, which can mimic real insect bees. By doing this bee keepers can help remove killer bee populations from city dwelling where they might attack people. Although some would say this is far-fetched, we are not that far off in understanding the bee population or their queen bee migrations. By developing tiny insect like Queen Bees which the bees will follow we can help divide hives and steer bees into areas where they can help us with our crop yields without killing little kids, pets and even adults.

African Killer Bees have migrated and are now in many western states and they have introduced themselves into the American Honey Bee populations which are mostly non aggressive. There have been many attacks in Arizona, Texas, New Mexico and California. It is not uncommon for them to swarm onto a small pet or human being when agitated.

A small mini swarm of social robotic bees might change the behavior of these bee populations or help us divide them or move them to agricultural areas where we can co-exist. They help us pollinate and continue to enhance our crop yields by as much as 40-60% and we allow them to live in peace and make honey and grow.

A tiny honeybee robot will be able to coax a hive to swarm away from middle class neighborhoods, playgrounds and schools to a more suitable area where they can grow and help growth of agricultural products and vegetation. We need to work together; the bees and us. We are nearly there with the technology we need to make this all a reality, we have been studying honey bees for thousands of years and they have one heck of an evolutionary track record; some say 400 million years. They can teach us a lot and we can live in peace without killer bee attacks, just because you wore something yellow in the wrong place at the wrong time. Think on this.
