Honey bees have 8 pockets on their belly where glands secrete wax. When the liquid cools the bee uses her foot to grab a scale and then chews it to shape it to make combs.

The "BeeSauna", a German invention to control Varroa mites through precision heat control. While bees can tolerate temperatures up to 64°C, bee nymphs can only handle temperatures up to 42°C.  Fortunately, the varroa's proteins are clotting at over 37°C. This device heats the hive to a constant temperature between 40°C and 42°C. Is this the perfect chemical-free solution?
