Bee wintering is related to dynamic modelling of biological systems. To assess efficiency of bee wintering building in a given environment a model in software POWERSIM is developed to indicating effect of temperature control in the building to reduce metabolic heating when bees use honey.
Currently two bee wintering buildings are in operation at Strazdu street 1. Wintering at this stage is part of Precision Apiculture project www.itapic.eu
