The Entrance Reducer is designed to regulate the temperature as well as the traffic of the hive. The smaller slot is used to allow the bees to defend the hive and is a vital when starting a new hive. The larger slot is also used to control traffic especially to prevent other bees from robbing and protection from predators.
Rotating Entrance Disc allows you open, close, vent, and exclude queen from leaving the hive. Idea for reducing traffic, restricting bees while relocating or working around hive. Comes with attachable screw, washer wingnut.
This varroa sticky board is used to track the mite count of a hive. This board can be used with or without the sticky screen board. If placed directly on the bottom board, the screen will be needed to keep the bees from the sticking to the sticky board.
Placing the Plastic Queen Excluders between the brood chamber and honey super prevents the Queen from laying her eggs where unwanted. These excluders allows the worker bees to move free from chamber to super while restricting the Queen.
