Big data for bees!
Commercial pollinators struggle to meet the demand for pollination services, because managing colonies is highly labor intensive. In the last 10+ years beekeepers have had to face new threats to bee health, such as new pesticides, pathogens, parasites, and declining forage in agricultural landscapes. Recent annual losses has reached 30% and even the most knowledgeable beekeepers struggle to sustain enough colonies required for commercial pollination of U.S. crops. In the meantime, demand for pollination services continues to rise every year. Combplex helps beekeepers meet this demand and keep more bees alive by enabling them to triage unhealthy colonies and manage their operations efficiently, all while maximizing bee health.
