Saving bees from Varroa mites using heat treatment

The Zurich-based start-up Vatorex aims to save bees worldwide. Its founders, who come from a family of beekeepers, have developed a sustainable technique to defeat the parasitic Varroa mite, one of the main causes of bee extinction in the world. The start-up company has created a system that operates solely on thermal energy. It already produces and distributes its technology on a large scale.
