Honey Bees

Automatic and chemical-free treatment of bee hives

Identification

Vatorex is a chemical-free treatment against the Varroa mite. The Vatorex-System uses the principle of the thermal treatment to kill the parasites without the side effects of acaricides.

Most beekeepers use chemicals (formic acid, oxalic acid) to treat against the parasite. Multiple treatments are necessary to keep up with the mites. The chemical substances can only be used after collecting the honey. With the Vatorex-System, beekeepers will be able to avoid chemical treatments and keep the Varroa on a low infestation level during the whole year, not only after honey earnings. As the Vatorex-System works fully automated, beekeepers don't have to care about the right weather conditions or proper safety clothing to do the chemical treatments anymore. the Vatorex-System is placed on the bottom of the wax foundation. On top of that, the bees build their cells. This leads to a «floor-heating» for the bee brood.
