Electric Bee Hive ( " The Bee Barn " )





















The following design system is to then allow for a healthier bee population as colony collapse disorder has been observed within the Agricultural sector. The design is a climate controlled bee hive that also then uses the albedo effect to assist in the passive cooling ( light colors exterior surfaces). The exterior surface of the hive is then refrigerated to also control the water condensation that will form when cool air meets humidity...


Bees as workers then also need to be fed within their hive... This design contains a supplementary feeder system for times when the environment cannot produce enough natural food for the bee.


Parts List


1.  Cooling tube ambient air

2. Refrigeration condenser safety plate ( (protects the condenser / also ventilated )

3. Refrigeration  " cool "  tubes cools the exterior surface of the bee hive

4. condensation cooling tube drains screened exhaust

4. buried drain tube

5. refrigeration evaporator sealed for water dual tube venting to cycle the cold air through

    the cooling tubes

6. refrigeration compressor

7. refrigerant storage pressure vessel

8. safety valve vents to the exterior

9. refrigeration valve switching system and electronic control system includes temperature

    sensors ( redundant )

10. refrigeration condenser

11. thermostat control switch ( refrigeration system )

12. Feed auger control switch

13. lighting control system and on / off switch

14. blower fan setting switch

      ( potentiometer )amber UVa UVb translucent plastic hinged lid  spring retention

      causing a closed position

16. electric heating element  contained under the "base plate"

17. Beehive flap with small arches  ( sum of 8 ) entry

      ports hive entry / exit

18. cold air discharge vent ( to the exterior of the hive

19. bee safety screen

20. bee feeder container lid

21. food tray

22. food auger

23. auger electric motor

24. electric blower fan ( low speed operation )

25. UV lighting ( assist in keeping the hive from bacteria ( intermiten illumination timed cycles )

26. feed container port

27. system malfunction indicator lamp indicates by color lens and lamp  that a malfunction

       has occurred

28. feed container hinged lid ( keeps the rain out )

29. blower fan vent weather safe ( keeps the rain out )

30.  meter bay exterior lumen sensor  ( day light sensor ) assist in systems function taking the

      exterior  temperature  and connects to the internal temperature within the electric bee hive

31. Power system sealed fuel less electric

      generator  http://www.designdeskinc.com/hydraulic-draft-cycle.html

32. bee hive honey comb  slide out frame

33. handle

34. bee landing porch

35. electrical ground ( systems ground also to control static electricity

36 ."base plate" covers the heating element has extractible ( from the rear of the

       hive ) a replaceable protector mat that allows for air flow and excrement extraction


A problem with the number of bees may be also due to over crowding ,...so this bee hive will "be" a bit bigger than the standard sizes in use currently... the comb extraction frames then  36" (L) x by 42" ( H ).  The honey comb frames are whether resistant stainless steel ( a thermal heat sink ) and rectangular with a 4" space between the honey comb frames that are then 3" thick. The hive interior then 39" (W) x 44 ( L )  " x  48" ( H ) . The exterior then 48" ( W ) x 52" ( L) x  and 60" ( H ).


The weather in storm conditions then also a factor to consider.. these bee hives then will also have a securing system that protects the top of the hive  from hail  (metal shield )and connected  straps that anchor the hive into the earth by attaching to a twist auger that is spun into the ground.


Minute humidity from the cool exterior surface will then pool upon the porch for then fresh water for the bees with low contamination factors. ( port drains on the porch ) .


Due to increased Uv light (Ultra Violet light ),  due to the damaged Ozone layer in the atmosphere. The Uv light then causing more radiation in the ultra violet spectrum. To bright for the bee's! The bees may be then being effected by to high a light level causing neurological disorders / neural  damage requiring more Ozone to then reduce the Uv light intensity..... ( a possible contributing factor to C.C.D. ( colony collapse disorder). Correction tool at http://www.designdeskinc.com/oceanic-ozone-buoy.html
