A hive for expanding your apiary forming offshoot, wintering small packages of bees, for the preservation and repair of uterus on spring develop further their use of technology two uterus content.
You can use it as a nucleus or as a box for the temporary admission of small swarm.
Hive consists of the following elements: body, detachable bottom, mansard, the roof covered with galvanized iron.
The case and the bottom is made of two layers of plywood with insulation between them 20 mm Styrofoam. The purpose of warming is to reduce the burden on families to maintain optimal temperature, to give the opportunity to focus on accelerated development of the family.
In the case of the hive You can put 3 bee containersΒ made from plywood in each of which are installed 4 Dadan frames. Entrances bee packages combined with entrances in the hive, so that the entrances of the two neighboring containersΒ be released on opposite sides of the hive-incubator.
Optionally, instead of the 3 containersΒ with 4 frames You can install two containersΒ with 6 frames. Entrances in this case will also be released on the opposite sides of the hive-incubator.
The design of the hive allows installing electro heating.
If you already have 12 Dadan frames with strong family you can remove the bottom of the hive-incubator and removed the roof from a beehive of Dadan and put incubator on top of a strong family that you will provide the ideal thermal stabilization of young families in the incubator without any electronics. Beehive-incubator is designed so that the flanges of the hive-incubator and flanges of the family in the 12 framework Dadan fully compatible. After such Assembly of two hives You get incubator in which the function warmers performs a strong family, which continues to operate in a regular mode.
Why is this project we use a standard frame and not the frame, such as micronucleus? Because the body is warmed effectively respectively alignment of temperature with height of the frame gives the uterus chance of cervice across the surface of the frame and not only at the top, which are small families able to heat. In addition to the lower heating smaller families will partially be able to warm each other, being in General insulated space.
And perhaps equally important is the fact that the hive-incubator gives the opportunity to resettle families just like you work with the retail bee package, which means you have 2 or 3 containersΒ organized on his apiary under your control, that is not the last value for selective selection and reproduction of productive families.
