MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) -Tracking devices are used to keep tabs on a car, purse, wallet or computer. Now some beekeepers in California are using tracking systems to protect something they deem important: their beehives.

This time of year, beekeepers around the U.S. send billions of honeybees to California to rent them out to almond growers.

To make sure hives don’t “disappear,” beekeepers are turning to GPS tracking devices, surveillance cameras and other anti-theft technology to protect their colonies. For beekeepers, the loss of a hive means the loss of income from honey production and from future pollination.
