What’s Nectar?

Nectar’s mission is to help the beekeeping industry ensure honey bee health and secure our food supply. By translating the language of bees, we aim to bring bees, beekeepers, and growers closer together.

Using technology and data-driven insights, we help beekeepers raise thriving beehives and optimize their operations while providing growers key measurements to realize the full impact of honey bee pollination on their crops.

Our solution aims to help commercial beekeepers reduce their operating costs, and improve their beehives’ productivity and survival rate by remotely monitoring the hives health, behavior and strength. Using artificial intelligence, we augment the beekeepers’ decision making capacities to apply the right care at the right time.
