Beeodiversity is an environmental monitoring tool that's linked to the ecosystem of bees. The tool allows you to identify more than 500 types of pesticides and numerous heavy metals. 

It analyses more than 20 indicators to give a true picture of the state of the environment. Some of these indicators are directly linked to insect, plant or human health (e.g. pesticides can lie at the root of allergies or serious illnesses).

On the basis of the results obtained, Beeodiversity hopes to make suggestions and take actions including:

  • Raising awareness among farmers or other users of pesticides found on the site about more sustainable practices
  • Planting in a targeted fashion to compensate for any established dietary deficiencies
  • Suggesting alternative practices to the actors emitting the heavy metals found on the site
