In late October we had the pleasure of filming with the European Investment Fund. We filmed in Fota House and Gardens with our CSO and co-founder Dr Pádraig Whelan inserting our monitor into the hive. We also filmed our CEO and co-founder Dr Fiona Edwards Murphy in the ApisProtect office here in Cork City, Ireland.

The European Investment Fund (EIF) are a specialist provider of risk finance to benefit small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) across Europe. Check out their website here to learn more about them.

During the course of our filming, CSO Dr Pádraig Whelan demonstrates how easy and fast it is to install the ApisProtect monitor into the hive.

‘’When you want to find out what is going on inside of the hive, the only way you can out is by removing the lid and the very act of doing that disturbs the bees. ‘’

‘’We reckon that you can detect a change in the conditions of the earlier and if there’s a disease problem, if there’s a pest problem, the beekeeper can then address that problem earlier than they would if they were just doing a monthly inspection.’’

CEO Dr Fiona Edwards Murphy spoke with the EIF team in the ApisProtect offices.

”The challenge that beekeepers face is that they are dealing with so many problems simultaneously, things like starvation or a queen dying. Those are very easy problems to solve if you know what’s happening. ‘’
