APIMAYE 4 PARTITION QUEEN HIVE PDF Print E-mail
Possessing all the features of the Thermo Production Hive and the Thermo Swarm Rearing Nucleus with 2 Compartments, the Thermo Queen Rearing Nucleus with 4 Compartments allows, by its very design, to simultaneously rear and feed four independent colonies in any region or climate. The living space available per colony not only enhances queen quality and enables her to lead a larger colony population, but also serves to increase productivity. The Thermo Queen Rearing Nucleus with 4 Compartments was designed to lend itself to be converted into a Thermo Swarm Rearing Nucleus with 2 Compartments or a Thermo Production Hive, by means of accessories, if needed.





















APIMAYE 4 PARTITION QUEEN HIVE DETAILS

1. Bottom: Contains four ventilation filters which enable air circulation inside the hive. (Figure 6)


2. Ventilation Nuts: Removed by turning counterclockwise for cleaning purposes, afterwards replaced by turning clockwise. (Figure 6)


3. Ventilation Filters:
Each available at the end of a ventilation nut, they keep foreign matter from entering the hive. After removing a ventilation nut, you can clean the corresponding ventilation filter or replace it with another. (Figure 6)

4. Varroa Drawer: Available on top of the bottom, it allows bottom board cleaning without disturbing the colony. Using this drawer, it is also possible to apply medication against varroa. The built-in air holes of the drawer enable ventilation. The drawer serves to facilitate control of varroa and cleaning of the bottom board. (Figure 19)

5. Upper and Lower Fixing Elements: By inserting each frame into a slot, potential damages during transport will be prevented, eliminating also the need for pre-transport fixing operations. If not needed, the upper and lower fixing elements each have a flat side (without grooves) that can be used instead. This will release the frames, allowing the beekeeper to choose to continue with his or her customary practice, as well. The elements can be used also in the brood chamber, super and shallow super. (Figure 17)

6. Bee Entryway Separator: Both sides can be used. The three-notched side is used when wintering. The opposite side with larger number of notches is for the bees to work easily. (Figure 21)

8. Colour Socket: Set on the flight board, it serves to prevent the bees from drifting from their own colony. (Figure 22)

9. Flight Board Sunshade: Dividing the flight board into two, this element of the porch protects the bees from direct sunlight in hot and sunny weather. (Figure 23)

10. Queen Mating Entrance: This is for the queen to enter & exit her hive during mating. Providing a different entrance intended specifically for the queen will prevent her from drifting when returning to her hive after mating. (Figure 32)

11. Queen Status Indicators: Provide convenience to the beekeeper in checking the condition of the queen(s), if any, in the hive, without having to open the top cover, thereby saving time. (Figure 32)

16. Larger Division Board: Used in dividing, uniting or wintering colonies, by shrinking the hive's interior volume, during cold climatic conditions. (Figure 32)

17. Queen Frame: Half the size of a normal frame, it is used for rearing queens. Queen frames can also be converted into a normal frame, if so desired, by linking them together via a special socket (Figure 34).

18. Queen Feeder: Four available for each hive, these boards are equipped with feeder covers and alternating covers. The presence of four boards allows separate feeding of each colony. As the other colonies remain undisturbed when checking any colony (Figure 35), this promotes a healthy bee development and a favourable habitat necessary for colony development. The size of each board is one fourth of that of the feeder-type inner board installed in APIMAYE Thermo Hives. The four boards can also be used together as one inner board.


19. Feeder Cover: Serves to keep the feeds from getting contaminated by wild animals, and also prevents any robbing by other bees. (Figure 35)

20. Alternating Cover: The feeders are equipped with alternating covers (Figure 36), which can be adjusted to the intended position (Figure 8) for the bees to conveniently access the cake, syrup or water (Figure 37).

21. Hive Top Cover: Ensures safety of the hive, while the louvred filters on two sides enable air circulation without admitting rain. (Figure 18)
