About APEX


A large and growing portion of our global food supply is directly dependent on honeybee pollination.

However, the global supply of honeybee hives is not keeping up with food production demands.


Our mission is to ensure that farmers always have access to strong healthy bees to pollinate their crops.

To do this our team has built a system that focuses on honeybee health and colony strength, instead of honey production.


Our team


Combined, the APEX team has published 25 scientific papers, which have been cited over 750 times, on pollination, insect rearing and thermal biology.
