In this work we conducted an analysis of the existing physical and chemical methods of treating bees for Varroatosis. It is shown that all chemical methods do not contribute to the production of biologically pure products, and the influence of physical methods often drives bees into an incompetent state. We proposed and investigated a physical method that would be more appropriate to the well-being of bees. This method is based on the creation of a limited space, to which the beekeeping operation is confined to, before treating it with a highly dispersive material, for instance, starch, and dispersed in all directions by electromagnetic radiation – in our case, by infrared radiation. First of all, to create an effective installation, we need to know certain operation parameters which in the future will help you choose the right settings for the installation. In this assessment, we perform mathematical calculations of the flux of optical radiation, which effectively penetrates through the bee cover. In this work, mathematical calculations for the flux of optical radiation, which effectively penetrates into the bee cover were investigated. For a more accurate calculation, we take into account the diverse composition of cells that each layer of the shell is made up of. It is important that all cells in their composition have water in a free or bound form. The results of cytological studies show that the closer the cells are to the surface of the cover, the less their biological functioning, that is, the cell has less water. Accordingly, before changing the amount of water in the cells, they change their optical properties, so that the corresponding spheres of the cover also change their properties. Considering this calculation of the optical radiation flux, which effectively penetrates into the bee cover, it becomes much more complicated. Therefore, here we calculated the optical radiation fluxes that are absorbed efficiently, as well as the optical radiation fluxes that are scattered in each of the cover layers.
