Pollinators, especially bees, provide us with valuable insights into the ecosystem within a 2 km radius.
We've developed a technology that translates the language of bees, allowing us to understand their signals and needs.
Our aim is to map 90% of the European territory, differentiating between sustainable and problematic areas.
Our community of businesses and citizens is backing this initiative, making it one of the largest bee studies in Europe.
Select the technological hive you wish to adopt. Each hive is monitored by sensors and microphones that collect data about the bees and their environment.
Download our app, analyze sensor data and track the growth of your hive. You are directly contributing to 3Bee's environmental research project.
Get photos and videos from your hive and a few jars of honey as a reward. In respect for the bees, we collect only a small portion of the honey.

In the world of pollinating insects, three main categories emerge: generalists, specialists and nocturnal pollinators.
Generalists, like domestic bees, visit many flower varieties, appreciating biodiversity.
Specialists focus on characteristic species, forming mutualistic relationships with these plants.
Nocturnal pollinators, such as moths, work at sunset, when some plants release nectar and intense scents.
Impact on food production and the food chain. Preserving biodiversity for a sustainable future.
3Bee has developed the technology that allows studying honey bees and wild bees. We collect data on bees to improve their care.
By choosing a 3Bee hive, you contribute to developing biodiversity and unique agroforestry systems. Disseminating nectar and pollen across the territory.
Our data is used by universities to improve bee care protocols. Finally, over 800 schools have activated 3Bee's educational programs.
The research project
We don't create new hives, instead, we take care of the existing ones. We protect them using innovative methods that allow accurate biomonitoring.
We have carefully selected 80 beekeepers from over 15,000 requests. Only experts capable of cultivating land, developing nectar oases, and taking care of all pollinators.
All hives are constantly monitored by biomimetic sensors that analyze bee health variations. Our bees have a reduced mortality rate of over 30%.
The Hive-Tech is capable of collecting data on the weight of the hive. Each individual bee collects nectar while pollinating and helps us understand problems of hunger and biodiversity
Through the biomimetic sensor positioned inside the hive, we listen to the sounds of the bees. Their voice tells us about the health of the queen and the entire colony.
The technological hive is completely self-sufficient thanks to an eternal energy source, the sun. The device stores solar energy and utilizes it throughout the day.
« Una realidad joven capaz de darse una misión clara en la dirección de lo justo. Un proyecto ambicioso capaz de combinar todas las dimensiones de la sostenibilidad (medioambiental, social, económica) y de participar con valentía en el cambio de paradigma que necesitamos. ¡3Bee es ética, profesionalidad y responsabilidad! »
« Un hermoso regalo de mi hija. He adoptado una colmena. Una pequeña ayuda para las abejas y los apicultores. Una excelente miel recibida. Una preciosa idea de regalo para compartir»
« Me regalaron una colmena 3bee gracias al programa que permite apadrinar una colmena. No pensé que algo tan simple y simbólico pudiera hacerme tan feliz. De vez en cuando controlo mi colmena y en septiembre iré a conocer a mis abejas que ahora están recorriendo Italia. Gracias a 3bee por contribuir activamente al bienestar de nuestro planeta. »
*We’re now facing a rapid decline of this species. Bees produce the 50% of the food you can find on your table. Because of that, they are crucial and essential for the environment, food production and human life.
