"For the past two decades, bees have been an important part of my life, given my practice of family beekeeping. After working for 15 years in the new technologies sector, I decided to change my life to get closer to nature and, naturally, to bees.
This is how I created my first company, Beesolis, whose mission was to introduce children and adults to the world of bees and beekeeping whilst making them more aware of environmental issues. The installation of many small hives quickly made me aware of the limits of traditional smoker, especially the difficulty of managing the start-up and the shut-down, the risks of fire, as well as the headaches caused by the smoke.
Not having found an alternative in the market, I decided to create myself the ideal tool. To do so, I surrounded myself with scientists and beekeeping professionals. After three years of research and development, the Apisolis was born.
Apisolis has succeeded in eliminating the constraints of the traditional smoker, and I am very happy to see that today it is widely adopted by thousands of beekeepers."
