Big data for bees!
In the last 10+ years beekeepers have had to face new threats to their bees, such as new pesticides, pathogens, parasites, and declining forage in agricultural landscapes. Annual losses regularly exceed 30% of managed colonies nation wide and even the most knowledgeable beekeepers struggle to keep their colonies healthy. In the meantime, demand for bee pollination services in the US continues to rise every year. Combplex helps beekeepers meet growing demand for pollination and keep more bees alive by enabling them to triage unhealthy colonies and manage their operations efficiently, without time consuming physical inspections. Combplex is bringing big data and bee behavior analytics to commercial beekeeping to keep our insect pollinators (and the dependent industries) healthy and strong.
