Wax Sushi Storage
July 8, 2018
An important condition for the development of bee colonies, preservation of their health and saturated pollination of greenhouse crops is the provision of bee families with honeycomb (wax drying).
In large beekeeping farms, the sushi is stored in sewers, where frames with a small distance are suspended from one another on racks. Thanks to the draft, the moth does not start in honeycomb.
In the majority of hothouse farms there are no special storage facilities and wax driers are stored in adapted premises.
For the preservation of land it is important that the storage facility be dry, ventilated and inaccessible to pests. In a damp room the soil is affected by mold and rust. Strongly destroy honeycomb mice and rats. They are destroyed with the help of all kinds of traps and processed baits.
Great damage to wax land can cause a moth. Butterflies moths are nocturnal, so they can not always be noticed
A warning measure of the appearance of moth is the maintenance of cleanliness in cabinets, drawers and in storage. The discarded land, wax litter and various pruning of the land are compacted
At temperatures below 10 њ C, the moth does not develop, but as soon as the temperature rises, the mole begins to move, feed and multiply.
The negative temperature in the range of 9-10 њ C for 5-2 hours kills the mole in all stages. Therefore, in winter, it is better to keep the dry land in an unheated room.
In adapted premises, because of the tightness and lack of draft, the drying on the racks is not suspended, but stored in tightly closed cabinets, boxes or in well-fitted cases and magazine extensions. If the floor is uneven, then for a reliable protection from mice and moths to the lower hull or store, a tin or plank bottom is beaten, in other cases an iron sheet is put and the top of the body is closed with a tin or glass. And yet this does not guarantee against the penetration of moths.
If larvae of moth appeared in small-honey and pergous honeycombs, they are destroyed by cold, elevated temperature, or by vapors of concentrated acetic acid, but in no case by burning sulfur. Sour gas, when combined with honey water, forms sulfuric acid harmful to bees.
In our practice, the spare land, as well as the frames that are to be dried in the greenhouses, we remove into the space that is being freshened. In this case, the mole and its larvae perish. With the onset of warm weather, when we put the bees out of the winter hut (and it is underground), we transfer the dry land, except for the store, to the winter hut.
In summer, even on hot days, despite the ventilation of the winter hut, the air temperature in it does not exceed 10 њ C, which also guarantees the complete safety of land from moths.
In the summer, after the removal and drying of the store shelves, they are temporarily placed in the winter hut until the cold snap.
