To conclude, RFID tags are very interesting devices that allow us to obtain a lot of information on bees during their normal activity or when they are faced with environmental pollutants. 8 illustrate what kind of information can be easily extracted from the analysis of recorded data. Obviously, to be of interest and representative, the number of tagged bees has to be at a minimum of some hundreds. It is worthy to note that RFID methodology has also found application in the study of ecology and ethology of bumblebees.
