Welcome to BEEGIN

Beegin started in 2016 as a university research project, with the aim of finding solutions to the problems faced by beekeepers. Problems such as the loss of beehives due to theft, vandalism, fires, honey-badgers, weathering and other insects. The outcome was a lightweight concrete beehive (a durable, low-cost alternative to wood) and the moulding tools for making them. Based on the standard Langstroth system, these hives protect beekeepers, and bees, from hive losses, so that money can be spent on increasing the apiary size, instead of maintaining it. The moulds also offer a revolutionary new way for people to make their own beehives at home, building up their apiaries and even selling hives to their local communities. With these as a foundation the Beegin business was formed with the aim of providing this, and other, technology to the beekeeping industry, working towards a bright future with bees.
