Hive Central LLC started when three college students started a research project about bees. We were so overwhelmed with the amount of the bee mortality rates during the winter, we dove head first into this issue.
Along the way we realized that wind and condensation were two huge issues that bees face. With the help of Dr. Edward Burkett and Kenn Railhala we were able to create the Bee Shield to help beekeepers increase the survival rate of their hives during the winter. The Bee Shield was created to reduce the wind infiltration while still promoting ventilation to decrease the condensation build up in a hive.
We want to continue improving beekeeping techniques by providing beekeepers with new innovative technologies to do so.
