Do you run or want to start a commercial beekeeping business and are wondering if there’s any tech out there that can help ensure your success? Take the guesswork out of your apiary with BeeWise!
Let artificial intelligence decrease bee mortality by 80% and increase your yield by 50%, all while requiring about 90% less manual labor than traditional beekeeping.
Keep reading to learn how BeeWise technology can revolutionize your beekeeping business.
Remote Beehive Monitoring Has Arrived
Any beekeeper, whether hobbyist or commercial, knows the downsides to beekeeping. Bees are complicated little creatures to maintain, and trudging from one hive to the next in a full suit during the hottest part of the year is no one’s idea of a good time, not to mention the inevitable stings.
But what if you could monitor your hives remotely?
With BeeWise, you can check on your operation from your smartphone, laptop, or iPad. Know what’s going on inside without all the heavy lifting, stinging, and overheating in a bee suit.
You won’t have to worry about coordinating with the weather, either: a single BeeWise unit contains and manages 24 individual colonies and can be automated how you want, rain or shine.
Everything from pollination, honey production, breeding, harvesting, pest control, feeding, swarm control, and temperature control can be done robotically. You can even tell the BeeWise app if you want tasks performed automatically or if you require approval first.
Modern Solutions for Commercial Beekeeping
BeeWise doesn’t just help you with the basics of beekeeping. The onboard AI learns as it goes, ensuring your bees are always being precisely monitored in real time.
You’ll also have access to all the data generated by BeeWise, so you can see exactly what’s going on inside at any time. All the control with a lot less labor!
So How Does It Work?
When you order a BeeHome, it’s delivered to your bee yard to be populated with bees. From there, the solar-powered unit gets to work raising happy, healthy bees.
Inside the BeeHome, autonomous robots take care of all the heavy lifting. Checking and treating for mites and other pests as needed, monitoring populations, and returning information back to you in an easy-to-assess visual format all happen without the beekeeper having to touch a single frame.
Constant Monitoring Made Easy
Beekeeping is complex and inspections can be tedious. BeeWise tells you everything you need to know, from how much pollen and brood are in each hive to which colonies have queens and which don’t, right from your device.
Avoid climate-related woes completely with fully automated temperature and humidity control, a frequent cause of colony collapse. Track nectar flows and dearths with incredible accuracy.
Swarms are a thing of the past with autonomous swarm prevention; let BeeWise make automatic adjustments and never worry about losing bees to swarming again.
Pests are already a leading threat to honeybees, and varroa mites in particular are decimating colonies everywhere. BeeHomes provide constant automated pest control and administer non-chemical treatments exactly where you need them. No more alcohol washes, vaporizers, or harsh and risky chemicals.
Decide when you want to feed your bees and let BeeWise know; the robot will provide a feeder frame with the necessary nutrients for any hive you want.
Want to see inside without opening up your BeeHome? Have the app scan to get a “bee’s eye view” of all the action without disturbing a single bee. The days of skipping a hive inspection because it’s raining or windy are over!
BeeWise can even help protect your bees from dangerous chemicals by automatically shutting all entrances entirely (while sending you an alert, of course).
For any other problems that arise, BeeWise will alert you in real time so you don’t miss a thing.
As Much Control As You Want
BeeWise lets you choose how hands-on you want to be with your hives. Allow the system to function autonomously or get in there yourself!
BeeWise can follow your specific beekeeping philosophy. Since the frames inside are built just like those found in traditional hives, you don’t have to stress about unfamiliar equipment.
If you’re worried about what happens in the event of a malfunction, BeeWise has you covered. An alert will automatically go out to the BeeWise team so they can investigate remotely.
In the meantime, you can work all of the hives in your BeeHome the old-fashioned way until the issue is resolved.
Need to move your BeeHome? No problem! It’s designed for mobility so you can put it where you need it most.
It’s also GPS enabled, so you’ll know exactly where it is in the event of theft.
Show Me the Honey
Harvesting honey is sticky, messy, and time-consuming. At least, it used to be.
BeeHomes boast full harvesting capability, eliminating this arduous task from your business entirely. BeeWise detects which frames are capped, removes the honey, and stores it in a 100-gallon container. Once it’s full, you’ll get a notification that your honey is ready … that’s it!
Make a Global Impact
Any beekeeper knows that it’s about so much more than just the bees themselves; pollinators are in trouble the world over, and the effect on our ecosystem is profound.
Not only can BeeWise help make your business more efficient and profitable, but it also has far-reaching benefits. By keeping bees healthier as a whole, they’re able to become more resistant to threats so they can continue the hard and important work of pollinating.
Preventing colony collapse is crucial in aiding the survival of honeybees all over the world and goes hand-in-hand with other initiatives to support their populations.
In turn, protecting bees helps protect the global food supply chain as well as infinite ecosystems.
Beekeeping for the Future
Commercial beekeeping comes with so many variables. Colonies often collapse seemingly without warning, which is both tragic and expensive. BeeWise can make a drastic difference in the sustainability of your operation.
