How it works?
The novelty of "Energy Bioclimatic beehives Promelis» ® lies in the fact that the thickness of the body sides are neither identical with each other, but neither stable, and is patented worldwide and protected by the A / D PATENT 20140100228 of C.B .I.
The thicknesses of the front and rear side (1 and 2) Energy beehives is 20-21mm. and remain stable, as the standard types, but the thicknesses of the two lateral sides (3 and 4) are changeable, i.e. is reduced or enlarged at 10 or 20 or 30 mm., depending on the season. This is done with the aid of two "special" movable insulated frames, thickness variation (CTS) (5 and 6).
SPRING SUMMER AUTUMN WINTER
In the spring the two CTS placed on the north side of the hive, protecting this double of the night frosts of this period, but leaving the south side, the direct sunlight a day for several hours, with half of the thickness (10 mm. ). Thus, the heat that collects the south side of the sun, passes inside the beehives, raising the spawn up to 50%, and contributing to the explosive growth of the colony.
In this helps the dark matt paint this side.
In summer both CTS placed on the south side of the hive offering this double insulation from sunlight and heat.
But the north side is in the shade and the cool summer winds, remains to half the thickness (10 mm.). This allows the dew to pass inside the beehives, saving energy for the hive and thus reducing the consumption of honey from the workers.
In autumn and winter the two CTS, placed one each on both sides of beehives, offering a good and balanced insulation inside.
If you need can even limit (especially in winter), depending on the size of the bees. In this way saves energy and therefore consumption of honey from the hive.
1-The operations and times listed above are indicative and may be modified depending on the region, the weather conditions each time, but the apiculture program will follow.
2-The external surfaces of the hive should be painted in light colors, while the south (sunward) side should be painted with dark matte color. Not paint a perimetric strip of a few cm, as shown in below FIG.
3- This hibes has the same internal and external dimensions of the standards and is therefore fully compatible with the honeycomb frames, and slim with and caps them.
4- The bioclimatic beehives accompanied by two frame thickness variation (CTS) "special type" and replacing them with other materials will bring changes to the technical characteristics and will degrade its advantages.
