BeeConnected is a simple, web-based system that can be used via a desktop or laptop computer, tablet or smartphone. Farmers can register on the system and identify a field they are planning to spray with an insecticide by dropping a pin in the on-screen map. Then, using the drop down menus, simply enter the are date you are considering spraying, the field to be sprayed and the insecticide you may consider using and a basic notification will be sent out to neighbouring beekeepers registered on the system.
Registering, either as a Beekeeper or a Grower takes a matter of seconds. Likewise for recording where you hives or fields/spray events are. What's more, it's free, simple to do and totally anonymous. Check out how easy it is here.
BeeConnected was developed with and is endorsed by the Crop Protection Association, Voluntary Initiative, NFU and British Bee Keepers Association.
