Bees work in physiological way
We go back in time to an ancient beekeeping that preserves particular attention to the bee family. The search for the designs of ancient hives was the starting point of our GIEMME project. The bee system will work in a more physiological way without focusing solely on production efficiency, in fact the amount of honey will be slightly reduced to the advantage of the bee, which will be less stressed. Getting the bee less stressed, without making the family too tired, means having a strong hive, able to overcome better the winter.
We lowered the height of 2 cm and reduced the number of frames to 9 in order to allow the bees to have more space and live better inside the nest. The entrance has been moved to the upper left.
If the entrance is correctly aligned with the sun, it allows the early exit of the bees, encouraging productivity and quality.
