A new model of AmoHive for the Polish market was made. The beehive was given to the experienced and well-known beekeeper of Silesian Region in Poland, Mr. Marian. The hive was testing for pollination of rapeseed/canola.

With the permission of Mr. Marian, the datas of pollination and functioning of this hive can be seen in AmoApp on the smartphone. The nickname is “Marian Siedlec”.

*The presence of pollinators, e.g. honey bees, on canola (cv. O.A.C Triton) increases the germinability of resulting seeds from 83% to 96%.

    diseases.

“…Ukrainian beekeeper Prokopovych studied the biology of bee colonies and strove to improve existing methods of beekeeping. His main intention was to develop methods that allowed the least disturbance and damage to bees. ..These efforts resulted in 1814 in the invention of the world’s first frame hive, which allowed an easier honey harvest. Another invention was a wooden partition with apertures passable only by worker bees, now called a queen excluder. It made possible the harvest of pure honey from the frames. Prokopovych’s inventions represented a landmark in the history of beekeeping and marked the beginning of commercial beekeeping…..”

This time our hive was leased by a breeding queen company. Let me introduce: Family Apiary “Lendel”, Mrs. Maria Lendel. The apiary are specializing in production good quality queens of the APIS MELLIFERA CARPATICA.

  • February 2019.  “Honey Drink” or old drink “Medovuha”.

Before new season, there is some time for making the old recipe of honey drink yet.  This recipe was known since the 18th century and was eventually completely forgotten. We will try to restore it! p.s. 4 frames with honey in honeycombs (honey + propolis + pollen + perga) + 20 liters of fresh birch sap + temperature no more than 13 degrees + no oxygen access + do not open until late autumn! 🙂 Of course …. it would be nice to install sensors for transmitting information about the production process of preparing a drink to smartphone 🙂

  • February 2019.  Your hives are using solar energy and friendly for nature! We need to support all that friendly for nature! We’re using ECO taxi service with hybrid cars only.

  • January 2019.  Experienced beekeepers from Eastern Europe recommend giving sweets to bees in the middle of winter. It’s called”candy”. Last year we also gave “candies” and bees successfully wintered. What’s going on inside the hive after bees get food? This year,  we gave “candy” to bee colony in Ukraine and the bee colony in Poland. You can see in the screenshots below what happened inside the hive after the “candy”.   It was a New Year’s Eve for bees 🙂

Online monitoring helped to save the rest of the bee families.
Details can be found in the pictures.
