The current standards in beekeeping don’t make sense anymore

Your hard work should not go to waste

Primal Bee’s new standard approach relies on minimal hive interventions, resulting in fewer hours of work per hive while doubling your bee population.

Stop paying for what nature offers for free

With Primal Bee’s boosting effect doubling your bee population, you can enjoy the reward of multiple splits per year. Expand your apiary organically instead of wasting resources on new nucs or using your splits to fill the gaps created by colony loss.

Honey should be made from nectar

A robust colony leads to an unmatched surplus in honey production and a decrease in feeder usage, resulting in a significant increase in honey purity.

Your business plan should not include colony loss

Minimize colony loss and regain control of your business plan. Over the past seven years our field tests, conducted at more than 20 locations across the U.S. and the EU, have shown a reduction in colony loss to as low as 10%.

Hard to meet the demand for pollination

As Primal Bee hive goes into full effect, pollination capabilities increase and reinforce the growth rate.

It’s not the Beekeeper who should fight Varroa

The larger the colony, the healthier and more resilient it is against Varroa mites. Additionally, the outstanding thermal efficiency of the Primal Bee hive enables better resistance to brood diseases.

When Primal Bee’s expert beekeepers-engineers meet the unique biology of the honeybee colony

Medal icon

Scientific Research

Under the leadership of Primal Bee® founders, mechanical engineer Gianmario Riganti and mechanical production expert Alex Gamberoni, both experienced beekeepers, our R&D team has dedicated its efforts to developing the most beneficial beehive for both bees and beekeepers.

Unique Geometry

We applied thermodynamics to design a nest that aligns with the specific biological traits of the honeybee colony as a superorganism.

Arrows icon

Optimal Material

We use 100% recyclable EPS to create supreme insulation, preventing energy loss and thereby enhancing the colony's potential to prosper.

Precise Sealing

Two top covers are used to prevent heat loss or gain and provide for a safe way to transport hives without losing bees.

Growth icon

Thermodynamic Efficiency

The hive acts as a booster for the bee colony. Harnessing a 500% increase in thermodynamic efficiency to transition from surviving to thriving, from loss to surplus.

Compatible with Standard EU/US Pallet

The hive dimensions fit both common pallets and allow for mobility, making it suitable for nomadic beekeeping or relocation needs.

Ventilation and Heat Distribution

Enhancing the colony’s inherent ability to moderate temperature and humidity.

Modular Bee Entrance

Provides the beekeeper with a range of options: fully open, two levels of controlled entrance, and completely closed.

From following tradition to renewing it

Our starting point

As beekeepers ourselves, we've witnessed firsthand the pain of increasing colony losses, bee mortality, and wasted labor. Years of adhering strictly to traditional beekeeping methods left us pondering: perhaps it's time to add new chapters to the majestic tradition of beekeeping?

Our Vision

Introducing a new standard hive is our initial contribution and a crucial step towards a world where beekeepers excel in supporting honeybees' prosperity, thereby playing a pivotal role in maintaining a balanced ecosystem.

Our Mission

The fundamental findings uncovered in the research conducted by Primal Bee founders, mechanical engineering Professor Gianmario Riganti and his childhood friend and colleague engineer Alex Gamberoni, have brought forth a paradigm shift in the role of a beekeeper. We are eager to share this knowledge with dedicated business owners and passionate hobbyists alike.

"Of all the hives I've worked with, the Primal Bee hive created the best conditions for my colonies to maximize their potential. The honey production exceeded what I thought was possible."

Ivan Pavdulov

Expert Beekeeper, Israel Desert

“Since using the Primal Bee hive, my bees are thriving like never before! They're stronger and more resilient against Varroa mites compared to my old hives. The difference is very visible - fewer mites, healthier colonies, and a lot less worrying"

Ben Parker

Expert Beekeeper, North California

“Having my beehives high up in the mountains means overwintering is a huge challenge. When I switched to Primal Bee I went from using 25 kg of supplements per hive, to as little as 1 kg during the winter. As spring arrived their population grew twice as fast as the colonies in my standard hives.”

Papa Gianni

Expert Beekeeper, North Italy Alps
