In Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), maximizing the lifetime is a challenging problem. The main task of a network is to receive information from node and transmit to base station for processing. If all nodes forward data packets directly to base station, they will drain their energy quickly. So, routing has to be performed to forward packets from source to destination. This paper proposes Bee Hive Optimization (BHO) approach for increasing the lifetime of WSN. BHO is an algorithm which is used to find the optimized path and thereby improve the efficiency of the network. BHO generates new path by taking energy as the fitness value to analyze different paths and select best optimized path whose energy consumption is very low compared to other paths.
