Environmental Biomonitoring using bees

APILAB is an engineering company specialized in environmental biomonitoring using bees. We are settled in La Rochelle, on the west coast of France.

Concretely we settle hives for private companies and public instances, to monitor and asess the quality of the environment.

Our services are various and complementary.
A first one, APIDIAG, consists in bee sampling and analysis to find contaminants (Heavy metals, PAHs, PCBs, Dioxins/Furans, pesticides, fine particles, etc.).
A second one, APIALERT, consists in a real time and remote beehive monitoring, thanks to an innovating system of video camera able to count bees going in and out. Alerts can be generated in case of abnormal values.
Finally, we propose to do a diagnosis of bee gene pool on territories. Biometric and morphometric analysis enable to assess the hybridization level of bees, and to put in place valuable actions for biodiversity preservation.
