Honey drying in the hive

Honey drying in the hive

Gleanings in Bee Culture 110(9): 503-505

A honey drying ventilator (hdv) consists of a 4-sided box 2 in high with a slot in the front the unit fits below the hive cover. A wooden door over the slot is actuated by a thermostatic strip, set to open the door when the ambient air temperature reaches 68--70 deg F When the bees are drying nectar and fanning at the hive entrance on warm days, fresh air is drawn in through the slot.
