Technical Transfer Team

The heart and soul of the Bee Informed Partnership lies in the people that make up our team. Tech Transfer Specialists are highly trained field agents who offer regular on-site hive inspections and sampling for large commercial beekeepers and queen breeders. The data they collect help provide large-scale beekeepers with the knowledge to make management decisions to maintain healthy colonies.

Our teams demonstrate the importance of monitoring disease and parasite management while working with beekeepers in the field. They collect samples, offer support, and analyze results. Additional services including longitudinal sampling on new feed and treatment options desired by the operation. Together, beekeepers and the Tech Transfer Specialists interpret real-world disease levels to make informed decisions about future treatments and colony management.

If there’s a problem, Tech Team Professionals continue the process on-site by analyzing lab reports and working with the beekeeper to find the best options moving forward. We’re creating a real time feedback loop so beekeepers have the most up to date information to make timely decisions in their operations.

If you are a commercial beekeeper and are interested in joining our program, please contact us today. We are are always happy to chat.
