Temperature shock hampering bees’ efficiency
Saatvik beniwal who hails from Hisar at Haryana was concerned about the major problem faced by the bee keepers that was incurring losses to them. He found that common problem of temperature shock of the bees were reducing their output.
Why temperature is important for bees?
The ideal temperature for bee keeping is 30-32 degree Celsius, “The temperature in north India ranges from 0-48 degree Celsius which results in high temperature difference for the ideal temperature of bee hive. More than 30 percent energy of honeybees is consumed in just maintaining the temperature of the bee box,” said Saatvik to Chalgenius.
Found a solution to the problem
The young entrepreneur who is also a second year student of B. Tech in agriculture realized that it was a major problem for bee keepers and has to be addressed to increase their profits. He along with his colleagues decided to do something about it, “We found that reduced efficiency of bees was causing losses to the bee keepers. After a research, we developed an artificially intelligent bee-box which effectively maintains the suitable temperature required for the bees, “he told Chalgenius.
Subsequently, he founded Hexhome Private Limited in November 2019 for the manufacturing of artificial intelligent bee-boxes.
How it works?
“We use PUF (Poly Urethane Foam) panels on the top of the bee box so as to maintain the temperature of the bee box which is very crucial for bee colony. There is also the use of ardunio for closing and opening of the windows of the bee box in respect of the temperature requirement. The energy needed is provided by solar plates on the top of the box,” said Satvik to Chalgenius adding that it moderates the temperature and prevents the temperature shock.
“Our product is expected to conserve more than 25 percent energy of bees which would lead to 10-15 percent incline in honey production.”
He already has the orders of around 1500 boxes from two private firms.
Benefits of the bee box
The use of our bee boxes can lead to almost 15-20% increase in honey production and its by products like bee wax, royal jelly, pollen, bee venom, etc.
He says that he plans to expand in the states of Uttarakhand, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh in the coming months and also the north east in the next 2-3 years.
