On a mission to
improve bee health


The Urban Bee Lab is a 501(c)(3) non-profit on a mission to improve bee health. We see bees as the ultimate tie that binds food security, climate change, natural disaster mitigation, and ecological preservation.

In partnership with The Best Bees Company, the UBL analyzes beehive data and reports results to elucidate trends and advance our understanding of global pollinator health. We aim to conduct cutting-edge research to stabilize honeybee health, and then extend those approaches to other, lesser studied species of pollinators in order to promote and preserve biodiversity at corporate, residential, and government sites, and beyond.

We intend to improve honeybee health and extend those approaches to other, lesser studied species of pollinators. It is our shared vision to educate, inspire and build community through research, programs, and partnerships. 

  • Research: We conduct cutting edge research to stabilize and improve bee health and believe it is critical to share our data for the global public good. 
  • Programs: We manage various programs that promote bee health and provide citizen scientists with the tools to take action in their communities. 
  • Partnerships: We work with a diverse group of partners including universities, corporations and government organizations that are committed to improving bee health.

We believe that honey bees can be leveraged for their scientific and societal value. They are both indicators of global pollinator health and cultural threads with which we can sew engaging dialogs that connect communities across generations. The UBL aims to harness the power of inclusive innovation to make a measurable, positive impact on the environment.
