Weight (g): 163
Materials and elements used in the manufacture of goods: this electric heater for fumigation by beekeeping, consists of:
an evaporator with a bowl and an electric heating element at 12V;
a metal rod with a diameter of 6.4 mm;
wooden carved handle;
electric wires 0.9 m long with crocodile clips.
Electric heater for fumigation by bee-colonies - a device for evaporation of drugs inside the hive, including sublimation.
Sublimation is the procedure of converting oxalic acid crystals at high temperature (+ 250-300 ° C) into steam, and then back to crystalline particles (like frost) that envelop the clubs and the entire inner part of the hive, and for a while directly act on the bees. This procedure is absolutely safe for bees, and the beekeeper must use a face mask.
Sublimation is performed only once per season, in a single generation of bees in the fall at a daytime temperature of +2 ° C to + 10 ° C. During this period there is no brood, which is very important for the complete destruction of varroatosis.
If you destroy varroa during this period, you can safely wait for spring.
Dosage and administration:
The recommended dose of oxalic acid crystals that are placed in the evaporator cup of an electric heater for processing one hive is 1.5-2 g.
Through the bottom tray, the evaporator with crystals of oxalic acid is placed under the frames in the hive. The electrical heater terminals are connected to the 12V battery for 2.5 minutes. Then, the terminals are disconnected, but the evaporator of the electric heater is left in the hive for another minute for the final evaporation of the sublimed preparation. Then proceed to the next bee colony.
Basic technical data:
the supply voltage is 12V (constant or alternating, the polarity of the connection to the power supply does not matter);
power - 40W.
