In a research carried out by Veltuis, Hayo HW, Kraus, Bernhard and presented to Tuson in April 2000, they deliberately cooled the fry at the time of Spring, autumn, by placing thin shelters, opening the bottom with sieves, feeding the beehives to spread the fry and placing incomplete combs between the fry, they saw Varroa double.
The same research showed that when the temperature was 35° C and the humidity between 79% and 85% RH in the area of the nursery, Varroa’s growth was between 0% and 2%, and its great reproduction was in the outer parts of the brood and in the pupae, the temperature was at 33° C and low humidity.
In the area of the nursery where humidity was at normal levels between 59% and 68% RH, Varroa was proliferating normally.
The toughest time Varroa had was when the hive conditions were, temperature 35° C and humidity between 79% and 85% RH. It seems that the cold parts of the hive favor its proliferation.
Another cause of Varroa’s development is the use of Old Honeycombs that favor its growth because the cocoons that have been left inside alter the consistency and transmission of Temperature from Cell to Cell with the THERMAL bees.
For a bee to be able to regulate its temperature and its humidity plays a very important role in the treatment, reduction and eradication of Varroa.
Based on this research and its proper results, we designed and manufactured the new Technosetbee plastic beehives, which respond heavily to the application of the research and its results, namely stable temperatures and proper humidity to combat Varroa to a great extent with a natural way that you can see for yourself.
