    Default GPS locator with anti theft alarm

    This looks interesting. Perhaps it could help recover stolen hives?

    You wouldn't put them in every hive.

    $20 bucks a month is pretty cheap if you put one every 50 hives or so. When you have a few hundred colonies stolen it will look very cheap.

    I don't use this brand, but we are experimenting with a few like this. We had around 300 hives stolen this past fall, this is the best insurance we could think of.

    Interesting. I agree, the cost is pretty affordable. Seems like it would need to be hidden in a hive which begs the question how it would operate within a hive environment. The 30 day rechargeable battery life isn't ideal.

    You'll need a posse too. Given previous posts, Beesource members might volunteer.
