Unfortunately, sheep’s wool in the form of insulation mats is usually treated with moth repellents. Please do not use this for the Diffusion lid! It is also best to buy untreated sheep’s wool directly from the shepherd or farm. Hemp insulation wool is also permeable and can be used as an alternative. The insulation properties are, however, slightly worse.
Viewing the infrared videos is a time-consuming process. Because there are always new exciting behaviors to discover, that I didn’t see before. In the following video you see two bees who transfer honey.
Bees sleep several times a day. Partially they go to empty cells for this reason. Their sleep lasts for a few minutes to a maximum of half an hour. In the following video a bee retreats into a cell for 5 minutes.
Current IR video out of the beehive shows meticulously mutual grooming of the bees. The groomed bee is waiting patiently and lifts the wings.
We have designed a lid for conventional beehives that eliminates humidity and mould in beehives. This way we generate a relative humidity of about 50% in the upper part of the beehive. With this drought, most parasites can hardly reproduce. Not even the little hive beetle!
