ECO-FRIENDLY AND BREAKTHROUGH MITE TREATMENT FOR HONEY BEES

Project description

Saving bees with proper heat

The Varroa mite is one of the most harmful pests of honeybees worldwide, responsible for up to 30 % of their mortality. As conventional chemical treatments pose no less danger for honeybees, there is a need for an environmentally safe, sustainable alternative to eliminate the Varroa parasite. However, existing techniques are still far from offering enough effective choices. The EU-funded VATOREX project will provide revolutionary change with the Varroa treatment solution based on different heat tolerances of bees and parasites. Thanks to the advanced technology, the Vatorex-System enables an easy, safe, pesticide-free, ecological and more efficient fight to save honeybee populations from the varroa mite, while keeping low sanitary costs and impacts for beekeepers.
