After three years of design work and testing, we have developed the Hive Genie. Hive Genie is a robotic beekeeper that acts as an Integrated Pest Management System, a Hive Guardian and an Information Center all in one Bee friendly unit. The Hive Genie makes beekeeping an enjoyable interesting experience.
Our goal is to minimize environmental impact while protecting bees from bugs, pesticides and animals. Learn about our healthy alternatives to pesticides.
Monitor hundreds of hives in seconds, no need to open the hives for inspection, the Hive Genie will let you know what is going on inside.
By detecting problems in real time, the Hive Genie can help you save the bees from many of their problems. It will alert you when something is wrong or when it's time to harvest or split.
We are a proud part of INGENUeering LLC. Our team members are Engineering Profesionals in the fields of: Environmental Egineering, Softwate Engineering and Electronics Engineering with more than 60 years of experience combined. Oh, and we are also beekeepers of course!
