SMART thermotherapy solution for varroa mite treatment.

Project description

A heat device for keeping bees healthy

Honeybees are threatened by varroa mites and varroosis which cause significant losses to bee colonies. The chemical strategies currently employed to fight varroa mites are carcinogenic, ineffective and leave residues in the bee products used for human consumption. To address this problem, the EU-funded WarmHive project proposes thermotherapy, the application of heat to get rid of dangerous chemical products and kill varroa mites. The WarmHive team has designed a solution that fits on the roof of a beehive and automatically applies heat without overheating the bees or affecting the structure of the comb or the consistency of the honey. WarmHive's aim is a cost-effective and accessible device for every beekeeper and every hive.
