BeesMAX at Bourne Business Park

Bourne Business Park has a BeesMax bee hive installed on the grounds, supporting the crucial rehoming programme from BeesMax. The hive also provides a resource for individuals and teams at the Business Park to learn about the life of bees, the programmes in place to support the regeneration of the bee population in the UK, and how their existence plays a crucial role in lives.

Visit the hive

BeesMax provides a service where individuals and teams can book a time slot to view the hive on the grounds of the Bourne Business Park, and learn more about why they have been installed and the positive environmental impact the hive achieves.

BeesMax and Arnia IT

Through the use of our Blue Box Rehoming Scheme, we aim to provide depleted wild colonies with a new habitat in which the bees can reorganise and restructure. As well as placing these in woodland areas, they also offer schools and businesses the opportunity to install hives on their sites.

Arnia, similarly, is a company concerned with bee health, but from a more technical standpoint. They have developed technology that goes into a hive and records data that is sent back to the beekeeper. Sensors are fitted inside the hive in order to monitor the colony’s behaviour and these statistics are then sent, via a gateway, to the user’s devices, allowing them to better understand their own bees. The data collected can be compared across different hives using the same technology.

After working together, both companies have decided to enter an official partnership, with BeesMAX using Arnia technology in their rehoming scheme. This opens up a whole world of educational opportunities and provides a more in-depth experience.

So why Arnia? 

The Arnia system is unique in combining colony acoustics monitoring with brood temperature, hive humidity, hive weight and apiary weather to provide detailed insight into hive conditions and bee behaviour. No other system provides this richness of data.
