Nectar helps me manage my operations at a distance

I wholeheartedly recommend Nectar to every beekeeper that I talk to. I'm part of the religion of Nectar. I think this is the future of how to keep track of your stuff—the best way to keep track of your hives, and make sure that people did what they say that they did.

I didn't realize when I signed up that I would get all of that GPS data for my hives and everything. Now I can kick that report over to my insurance agent and I'm not going to be missing anything. I'm going to get the full benefit and be able to insure so much more.

Gary Barber

Owner at Bees Unlimited & VP of the Texas Beekeepers Association

I can't be everywhere all the time. So now that every one of my crew has the Nectar app, I can still have my finger on the pulse of the operation without me physically being there all the time.

Unlimited number of users

Nectar is built for commercial-scale beekeeping, so we won't charge you for more users - no matter the size of your outfit or number of employees.

Multilingual support

Nectar offers support in French, Spanish, and English, as well as multilingual versions of the app. We meet your people where they are.

Additional custom reporting

As data collects, you may require analysis that goes beyond the basic product. Our data team regularly works with beekeepers to produce answers for their specific needs.

Your data is safe with us

All your hive data is owned by you, but Nectar maintains access. This allows us to develop insights that improve the product and support beekeepers. We will never share any of your data unless it’s completely anonymized.

Have questions?

One tag per hive that you plan to monitor.
Yes, you can reuse your BeeTrack tags. Simply remove them from the hive and use the app to re-assign them. We also sell tag holders, which are affixed directly to the hive. With tag holders, simply slide out the plastic tag and insert it into a new location.
We understand that many yards are in areas without cell coverage. When you’re working hives in those areas, you can use the app normally, and your data will be updated when you’re back within signal range.
Getting started with Nectar involves an initial, one-time investment in physical equipment. Customers purchase custom tags that are placed on each individual hive. Batch scanning readers are also available for purchase to increase the speed of scanning. After that, Nectar charges customers on a monthly basis to use our software.
