Bee Cool Ventilation Study!
University, Hive Ventilation Studies!
Varroa Mite populations diminish when hive is dried out.
Chalkbrood will flourish in humid
Nosema is treated by increasing the ventilation through
Small Hive Beetle prevention, maintain good
ventilation in hive and honey house
Maximum upward ventilation is also required to evaporate
excess moisture during nectar flows.
Why You Need a Bee Cool Ventilator?
Frequently Asked Questions!
Bee Cool Ventilators have a life span of at least 10 years.
For every 3 pounds of nectar, 2 pounds are water that the bees
would normally remove with fanning. Not any more because Bee Cool
does this for them. They will only cap as much honey as they
can manage. Also with heat and humidity you attract all kinds
of pathogens. Solution - remove it with a Bee Cool Ventilator!!
What are beekeepers
saying about Bee Cool Ventilators?
If the hive is too warm, the queen will stop laying which translates into a
weaker hive. How will they be able to fight off Varroa?
Beating their wings too ventilate the hive, during the nectar flow can cause
tremendous stress, reducing their life span up to two weeks.
Honey Bee Hive Ventilator a Must:
BeeCool Ventilator was the pioneer or first company to mfg a honey bee
ventilator and has a built-in thermostat that keeps the hive from a chill, that
would decimate the hive. BeeCool was the First and only bee ventilator until recently some have sprung up
that do not make use of a thermostat and fan to control the air flow. The first
intention of the inventor (long time bee keeper) was to produce more honey, and
was surprised at all the other benefits that outweigh even 30- 50% more honey.
The main focus now is the health of the hive. It has been found that since we
have taken the honey bee out of the watered cooled tree, they have been
suffering from many stress-related problems. Bearding, unnecessary Swarming,
Chalkbrood, Nosema, Small Hive Beetle,
Varroa mites and all of these problems
thrive with heat and humidity (links of proof above). So if one of these problems
or more occur, then the chances are good you will loose the hive or hives, and you would
be out possibly thousands of dollars. That is why a bee vent is now a must. We
as humans thrive if we have a comfortable environment; when we
feel good when there is no disease or stress. The same can be said for the
honey bee. In fact if it is above 90 degrees, don't you feel less exhausted and can
get more done if you just have a little air conditioning. Remember it is
always warmer on the inside of the hive. When you add excessive humidity
to the heat it becomes unbearable. If you have a lot of stress in your life it
has been proven that it is hard to fight off disease. The same can be said of
the honey bee. If we just put ourselves in the shoes of the honey bee, we
quickly begin to understand there dilemma. In just a bought every other area
such as beef, milking cows, poultry they have realized they get much
better results by making the animal comfortable.The bottom line is BeeCool
Ventilators (built in thermostat and fan) is a must and should be part of your bee
Note - Would like to welcome researchers, areas that need to be
studied are the further effects that Bee Cool Ventilator has on mites and the
hive beetle. Also to continue honey increase results. For more information email
Purchase a hive ventilator with a built in thermostat. It
takes one or two hours of cold weather to devastate your hive!
