An eco-positive solution to the varroa mite
The most significant threat to honeybees today is the varroa mite. For more than 40 years, beekeepers have relied upon poisonous miticides to treat varroa infestations. These chemicals have been linked to the spread of virus’s and bee losses. Our chemical free solution eradicates the varroa mite and the virus’s they spread, without causing harm to bees or brood.
Meet the technology
Revolutionary thermal treatment against varroa
In the comb
Heating coils are embedded directly into wax foundations and maintain a temperature of 42° C for three-hour periods. This provides optimal killing power against varroa and stops the spread of virus’s, without harming bees.
Heat cycles repeat automatically every 16 days to stop reinfestation.
In the brood chamber
Each kit equips one hive and contains a ‘Hive Connect’, along with 8 heatable wax foundations and control units.
The Full Hive Kit adds digital weight and temperature sensors.
In the apiary
All kits are connected to the Apibrain.
This is the intelligence of the system and regulates treatments. The Apibrain is included in each order and controls up to 20 hives at a single apiary location.
The Vatorex system can be powered by solar, with a solar panel, charge controller and solar battery, or by grid energy.

Vatorex has the potential to significantly reduce the amount of chemicals that we use.Robert Bühler, Beekeeper
I participated in the Vatorex field trials and was convinced of its positive effect in the colony.
Next year I will continue the treatment.Fritz Möckli, Beekeeper and farmer
We use the Vatorex solution because it helps us to achieve a sustainable apiculture.Daniel Kistler, Beekeeper
