Nectar helps dozens of beekeepers around the world to preserve their hives. Learn more about their stories and how Nectar can help your business.
Busy Bee Farm has been using Excel to manage their beekeeping records for years, but it’s a challenge to stay on top of data entry during busy periods. They want to use their data to track the health and history of hives from pollination, post-pollination and winter. Busy Bee also wants to make informed decisions about which queen breeds work best for their operation. BeeTrack makes it easier for Busy Bee Farm to manage their employees and hives. Advantages include time saved through record keeping and easier planning for management.
Noyes Apiaries operates with multiple teams in different states. Managers wanted to know who visited which yards and what jobs they completed. Nectar and the Noyes team developed a custom map showing when a yard had been worked last.
Olson Honey operates across Washington State in 2-3 teams, fulfilling various pollination contracts throughout the season. When it’s time to store the hives for winter, it’s been a challenge to confirm that every hive has received “Finals” - the operation’s term for the set of preparations each hive requires before wintering indoors. Olson Honey uses BeeTrack to confirm that every hive received Finals. Nectar created a customized, color-coded map that displays which yards had Finals applied. Preparation for winter storage went smoother than previous years because of the Finals map.
