Beewise Makes the 2024 CNBC Disruptor 50 List

Able to work around the clock, the new BeeHomes are a time saver for beekeepers, who can use an app to remotely manage operations from their desk or home, while advanced hardware in the field monitors and takes care of the bees.

The Best Inventions of 2023: A Mighty Hive - BeeHome 4

Beewise’s AI-powered BeeHome 4 is a hive that uses a new chemical-free heat treatment to fight off mites. The hives, available next year, boast robotic tech that monitors and optimizes conditions 24/7, reducing human beekeeping labor by roughly 90%.

Introducing new beehive technology to beekeeping to save bees on a global scale

There are a lot of mundane tasks involved when it comes to beekeeping that can also lead to significant colony loss at the end of pollination. With advancements in AI and Robotics, a lot of the daily tasks that come along with beekeeping can be accomplished by upgrading the technology.

This IoT company is tackling the climate crisis through connected beehives

Beewise’s signature product, the BeeHome, upgrades the traditional wooden box that beekeepers have used for decades in favor of a smart home of sorts. Interior cameras keep an eye on honeycomb growth and worker productivity. The boxes can regulate temperatures and release additional food.

An inside look at how robot beehives are saving bees

Beewise is an example of how low-cost computing hardware and software are enabling some really unusual applications, like autonomous beekeeping. If Beewise is able to get more of its BeeHomes in the hands of farmers around the world, it could save many more honeybees, and that's good for everyone.

With Labor And Climate Challenges, Farmers Turn To Robot Beehives, Tractors And Fruit Pickers

“We’re losing the bees on the planet, about 35% of the bee colonies every year," said Saar Safra, CEO and cofounder of Beewise. "Considering the fact that bees pollinate 75% of all the fruit, vegetables, seeds and nuts on the planet, losing 35% a year puts us in a bind."

Beewise aims to staunch the loss of bee colonies with robotics-enabled BeeHome 4

The BeeHome 4 is both smaller and lighter than previous iterations, fits on a conventional forklift, and fits into existing beekeeping workflows by accommodating standard bee hive frames. These new design features will increase hive mobility, enabling farmers to effortlessly care for millions of bees.

This startup is helping save the world’s bees

A quiet revolution is underway to save the world’s pollinators. It comes in the form of a nondescript tin box, the size of a small container, with bees buzzing around it. The box is the creation of Beewise Technologies, using AI, computer vision, sensors, and advanced robotics to save honeybees.

A “five-star hotel” to help honeybees

When honeybees check into the Beewise “five-star hotel,” they don’t want to check out. A robotic arm attends to their every need. Hungry, sick or hot? Artificial intelligence software tells the robot to administer nutrients or antibiotics, to harvest honey or crank up the AC inside the high-tech hive.

Robotic Beehive Using AI To Save The Bees And Global Food Supply

The BeeHome includes precision robotics, computer vision and AI. It enables constant monitoring of the bees, using AI to observe their needs in real-time. Beewise does not alter what beekeepers traditionally do. Rather, it augments their work by upgrading the traditional, 150-year-old beehive.

Can robotic hives help save the world’s bees?

The question arises — as it often does — whether people can help revive bee populations. Founded in 2018, Beewise offers a robotic solution. The solar-powered enclosure monitors its beehives, offering climate control and automated harvesting.

Bees find refuge from a perilous world in robotic hives

One after another the machine scanned stacks of honeycombs that together could house up to two million bees - inspecting them for disease, monitoring for pesticides and reporting in real time any hazards that threatened the colony.

Tech firms use remote monitoring to help honey bees

Able to operate autonomously, or via an app on the beekeeper's phone or tablet, each BeeHome comes with an array of cameras, sensors and robotic arms that together take over the actions that would otherwise need a human hand, such as pest control, swarm prevention, and harvesting the honey.
