In order to build a good and durable winterer for bees, with their own hands, you need to have the information. Now, we describe in detail how to do.
The main thing – the right to choose the place where the future of bees winterer, it must be protected from humidity, wind, stay away from the overlying groundwater, they must be distant at least 3 meters from the ground will be located. Of course, it would be convenient to place winterer hillsides, it prevents temperature fluctuations. But experienced beekeepers construct underground winterer, it preserved the right temperature, which should not exceed 3 degrees. It is also constructing a semi-underground or aboveground winterer, depending on the location of groundwater.
If you want to build a semi-underground, you know, it needs to deepen at least 1 meter, after forcing the walls and ceiling fall asleep outside his land, but it is better clay. In this case, follow the resistance supports, we recommend choosing a strong material. The supports should be located at least 1.5 m apart. For a solid support using asbestos or metal pipes.
Such winterer not hit the family budget and be durable in operation. It can oust the walls of any material available to you.
If you still groundwater are close to the ground surface, then constructing overhead winterer and do a good thermal insulation. You can also use a ready-made space, but you need to bring it to the correct state.
Our recommendation – semi-underground winterer.
