The increasing in honey bee mortality of the last years has brought great attention on the possibility of intensive bee hive monitoring in order to better understand the problems that are seriously affecting the honey bee health. It is well known that sound emitted inside a beehive is one of the key parameters for a non-invasive monitoring capable of determining some aspects of their condition. The proposed work aims at analyzing the bees’ sound introducing features extraction useful for sound classification techniques and to determine dangerous situations. Taking into consideration a real scenario, several experiments have been performed focusing on particular events, such as swarming, to highlight the potentiality of the proposed approach.
