Bee Innovative offers facial recognition for bees. It is a scalable multipurpose platform technology that identifies and categorises different types of bees, detects the presence of Varroa Destructor mite (global major contributor to bee population decline) and reports this in real-time to biosecurity agencies, bee keepers or farmers through mobile applications. Bee Innovative will help protect $6 billion/a bee pollinated Australia agricultural production (the last country in the world without Varroa mite), reclaiming $90 billion/a lost global bee pollinated agricultural production, help feed the world's growing population through improved yields and volumes and ultimately help save the European honey bee from extinction.
