Hive Central was founded by three UW-Oshkosh students when we had the opportunity to help tackle bee mortality rates during the winter.
The Bee Shield™ was originally invented in Superior, WI when an experienced beekeeper and an engineer realized that wind infiltration and condensation are two huge issues beekeepers face during the winter. With winter mortality rates of 30% nationally and 50% in the midwest, something needed to be done. 
As Hive Central, we want to provide beekeepers with new technologies to add to their beekeeping toolboxes.
