This is our heavy-duty screened bottom board made from sturdy 2x4 lumber. This piece is built to last. The screened bottom board was originally developed to help control varroa mites, but beekeepers soon realized this particular style of bottom board was also great for adding extra ventilation to the hive and controlling moisture levels when used without the included debris board. The debris board can be used periodically during the spring, summer and fall when you're doing your 24-hour mite checks to assess the mite population in your hive. The included removable debris board is also helpful for winterization, when installing a new hive, or requeening your hive, as the debris board helps contain the queen's scent for better acceptance into the colony. Painting is now available for this item.
This heavy-duty screened bottom board includes a removable debris board, slanted landing board, and entrance reducer. Fits with 10-frame equipment. Comes pre-assembled.
