1. A beehive temperature and humidity control system for preventing water condensation and mold inside said beehive and removing excessive moisture from said beehive in a cold and freeze climate environment, comprising:
(a) at least one condition control sensor to sense humidity and temperature inside said beehive, wherein said at least one condition control sensor has upper and lower humidity and temperature thresholds determined by a user;
(b) a first ventilation fan being arranged at an opening on a top side wall of said beehive, said first ventilation fan running continuously to generate out-going air flow along side walls of said beehive for preventing formation of water saturated air condensation, and at least one second ventilation fan being arranged at an opening on an opposite top box side wall of said beehive to be activated for dehumidifying said beehive when said humidity inside said beehive is higher than said upper humidity threshold;
(c) a ventilation circuit connected to said at least one condition control sensor and said at least one second ventilation fan, wherein said ventilation circuit controls said at least one second ventilation fan according to humidity and temperature sensed by said at least one condition sensor;
(d) a heating element located at a bottom panel of said beehive to preheat incoming air flow from outside flowing into said beehive through an opening entrance at a bottom of said beehive;
(e) a heating circuit connected to said heating element and said at least one condition control sensor;
(f) honey comb frames being arranged in said beehive;
(g)
(h)
(i) an AC-to-DC supply voltage converter for said first ventilation fan and said at least one second ventilation fan;
(j) an electrical power supply source; and
(k) a ceiling foam insulation to prevent water condensation on an inner surface of said beehive.
