Innovative solutions for productive bees and profitable beekeeping.
Better Beekeeping

Hivesite takes a fresh research-driven approach, re-imagining the design of thermal treatment for beehives from the ground up, with full automation and profitability for commercial beekeepers at its core.

We are developing a chemical-free solution for treating Varroa mite in beehives, designed to protect bees and improve profitability of commercial beekeepers. It treats Varroa mite by autonomously applying a periodic thermal treatment, is easy to fit to standard Langstroth hives, and is powered by a solar-panel top cover. With future upgrades, the system could also support remote hive monitoring, sharing the same base-hardware and power source.

  • Automated Varroa Mite Control
  • labour-free, chemical-free
  • Treat any time
  • Benefits to bee health and longevity
