What we do
The beekeeping range was created in 2004 as a result of a high demand from the beekeeping sector and since then it has been growing and strengthening. The detection of the many needs that beekeepers have in their daily activities from the moment they go out to the field to work with their bees until they want to position their products on the international market, has meant that Biopyc has focused on a sector that – on occasions – has felt forgotten about and marginalised within national livestock farming.
In order for beekeeping to become established as yet another agricultural activity, Biopyc has committed to invest in an extensive catalogue of products and services that aims to encompass all of the beekeepers’ needs. In addition, it has a vet specialised in bee health available to its clients in continuous contact with all those who form part of the sector: beekeepers, technicians, beekeeping business owners, researchers, etc. This enables Biopyc to have an extensive vision of the beekeeping situation to provide a better consultancy, training and information service.
Why trust in Biopyc?
The wide range of products that Biopyc distributes facilitates the work of vets and beekeepers, and benefits the health and production of the colonies of bees.
At Biopyc, we work to help our clients achieve their aims. Consequently, our priorities are primarily quality and the continuous improvement of our products, as well as the commitment of everyone who works at the company to offer a service that fully satisfies our clients.
At Biopyc, we consider animal health to be the founding basis of beekeeping farms and we are working in this direction to therefore ensure animal welfare that leads to an increase in beekeeping production. Our aim is to contribute in this manner to the development of the colonies of bees and to the increase in production yields.
Varroa destructor, the mite responsible for the disease called varroosis, has become a problem in beekeeping worldwide. This has led to huge losses due to decreased production yields, or due to the mortality of the colonies of bees.
The detection of Varroa within the colony implies taking immediate measures not just to lower rates of infestation but also to limit their spread within the colony.
The reproductive state of Varroa is perfectly synchronised with the biological cycle of the European honeybee, and takes place inside the cells (worker/drone) once these have been sealed or capped.
Biopyc has a wide range of registered medications to treat and control this mite that enables the rotation of molecules in conventional beekeeping farms as well as its use in organic farms.
Nutritional supplements help to fulfil the colony’s nutritional needs, boost the bees’ resistance and improve the production of offspring and honey.
An adequate diet improves the immune system, develops the defence mechanisms of the bees and helps to reduce the rate of diseases of the colony.
Disinfection is the most effective means of combating diseases. The material for beekeeping farms should be in a perfect state of cleanliness, disinfected, and deep cleaned on a regular basis.
Inokuo® is a disinfectant tolerated by bees after its application on beekeeping material and its use does not pose toxicological problems for the colony of insects.
Inokuo® is effective for the disinfection of all types of surfaces and environments (drinking troughs, floors, tanks, utensils, containers, walls, ceilings, tables etc.) and against bacteria, viruses, fungi, spores, protozoa, algae and organic matter.
We take animal health waste or the remains of products used on farms for the health care of animals (medications, containers, syringes, sharp objects, etc.) in containers to an approved agent (Collection and Transfer Centre), either directly or by using the network of municipal or regional intermediate storage points.
In the case of animal health waste, the most important element is to properly separate it at origin and deposit the waste in the specific containers:
- One for infectious biological, sharp and pointed waste (Codes LER 18 02 01 and 18 02 02)
- And another for waste from chemical product containers (Codes LER 18 02 05)
