Bee fences to tackle elephant attacks

Date: 17 March 2021 Tags: Miscellaneous
  • A pilot project has been launched in Kodagu to install bee boxes along the periphery of the forest and the villages with the belief that the elephants will not venture anywhere close to the bees and thus avoid transgressing into human landscape.
  • These spots are located on the periphery of Nagarahole National Park and Tiger Reserve, known conflict zones.
  • The boxes are connected with a string so that when elephants attempt to pass through, a tug causes the bees to swarm the elephant herds and dissuade them from progressing further.
  • Bee boxes have been placed on the ground as well as hung from the trees. High resolution, night vision cameras have been installed at strategic points to record the impact of bees on elephants and their behaviour in these zones.
