How does the Thermosolar Hive™ work?
The thermosolar beehive is a therapeutic device and magazine hive in one. Using thermosolar windows in each box and thermosolar ceiling, the thermosolar hive is able to warm the sealed brood in brood chambers during the thermotherapy to temperatures that are killing Varroa destructor. During the thermotherapy, both systems work together. The sunrays are transformed into heat waves that radiate into the brood chamber. The heat is absorbed into the wax, honey supplies and brood. Thanks to the thermally insulated honey chambers and bottom, the heat accumulates and retains for the time necessary to eliminate the Varroa mites. Therefore the varroa mites are exterminated also in sealed broods. Last but not least, thermosolar windows increase the thermal comfort of the bee colony in the long term.
