We offer beehive created based on the brilliant Russian beekeeper Vitvitsky N.M. (1764-1853).
According to the modern classification beehive belongs to a group of multi-case frameless and it is absolutely devoid of problems honey-free space between the cases.
Interior space of the hive about 60 liters.
The cases have variable cross-section and volume , collected on a smooth fugue with the lapping, ie, can be separated from each other by a string that is being successfully implemented such in VarreΒ hivesΒ project. The most characteristic difference Vitvitsky projects is that the bee family develops and warms the hive that volume which she had enough biological resources at a given time. Increasing the living space with the development and vice versa.
Because the hive is not put standard combs, the bees are able to build a cell based on their breed size, growing bees are often larger and stronger than grown on standard honeycomb. This can be essential if the apiary, for example, stands on the bank of the river, when the main honey plants on the other side of river. Weak small bee loaded with pollen and nectar cannot cross fly river without intermediate landing and can die.
We would like to mention the possibility of bee family life in two ways:
- Wintering in the bell that most closely matches the biological needs of the family.
- Summer Life in the hive framework that most closely matches the problems beekeepers obtain the maximum amount of honey.
For esoteric - provides data bee colony development, as well as any biological system in a pyramid - which can be very interesting.
Additional argument in favor of the project Vitvitsky - it is possible to accommodate a very small swarm, which is not able to heat any of the standard hives even extremely clamped and simply forget about it until the autumn giving the family a chance.
Vitvitsky project when combined with modern advances provides a lot of pluses in beekeeping.
