Solve the biggest problem in beekeeping today
The 1.6 millimetre small #varroa mite is the biggest problem of today’s #beekeeping worldwide. The #parasite nests in the beehives, sucks out larvae and transmits harmful viruses. Without treatment a #colony of #bees dies within three years. Until now, bee colonies have therefore been treated with chemicals. These acids damage the bees and thus become a cause of bee mortality themselves. Residues of it can also be found in our #honey when used incorrectly.
The core piece against the #Varroa is a #heating #wire, which is inserted by #Vatorex directly into the middle walls. Thus the entire #incubation #chamber is equipped with heating wires except for the edge honeycombs (normally 8 heating honeycombs).
Our sophisticated electronics register all connected combs and heat them fully automatically and repetitively every 16 days to 41 °C. You switch the system on in April and off in October – there’s nothing to do in between.
At Vatorex we put the bee at the centre of all our efforts. We help beekeepers to control the varroa mite, the biggest threat to honeybees today, to ensure the vitality and productivity of the bees. We develop and market innovative high-tech solutions for monitoring and managing beehives, so that our customers can take optimum care of their bees.
A lively and vital bee population ensures a healthy ecosystem and flourishing biodiversity, as bees are the most important pollinator of plants. In addition, one third of our food is dependent on bees. They are extremely important for our agriculture and food security.
Bees play an important role in our society and environment.
At Vatorex we want to contribute to a healthy, robust and sustainable world by supporting bees.
