Innovators at heart
HiveGenie set out to solve a major challenge that vexes the health and economic well-being of people around the entire world: Bee death or colony collapse.
Shortages of bees in the US have increased the cost to farmers renting them for pollination services by up to 20%.
Bee death creates important economic losses because several agricultural crops worldwide are pollinated by western honey bees. In the six years leading up to 2013, more than 10 million beehives were lost, more than twice the normal rate of loss. To put this in perspective, according to U.N. FAO data, the world’s beehive stock rose from around 50 million in 1961 to around 83 million in 2014, which is about 1.3% average annual growth.
