Bee Vectoring Technologies International Inc. has three families of patents filed in 40 countries for our revolutionary bee vectoring technology, including patent applications pending under review by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The company’s portfolio of over 40 patent applications worldwide covers various aspects of BVT’s key technologies, including:

  1. The BVT Dispenser System
  2. The Vectorite™ brand composition
  3. The active ingredient BVT-CR7

The BVT Dispenser System is an apparatus for the treatment of plants that includes an inoculum dispenser and a tray. The BVT inoculum dispenser system is incorporated into the lid of commercial bumblebee hives. In the dispenser is a removable tray that contains, in powder form, the inoculant crop control and a mixture of products (Vectorite™ brand composition) that allows the bees to effectively pick up the product on their way out of the hive.

The Vectorite™ brand composition is a proprietary mixture of products that allows the inoculant to attach to a bee’s hairy legs and body as it walks through the tray on its way out of the hive. Vectorite™ brand composition allows for delivery of BVT inoculums, either individually, or together with other bio-controls and crop controls.

BVT-CR7 is a specific strain of fungi from the genus Clonostachys Rosea which is known to be an endophyte and blocks pathogens from rapid colonization of plants. The mode of action of the fungi, which is one of a pioneer coloniser and occupier, is to stimulate growth and block diseases such as Botrytis and Sclerotinia. When used as a foundational program in high value crops it is effective in controlling key diseases that can cause enormous commercial losses in crops.
