My queens will never be the same...

This clever entrance reducer that keeps queens in and lets the rest of the ladies out to do their work is perfect for me…I use it for swarms and other special occasions…nice quality, easy to use…good value!

Great Idea!!!

These are a great idea, and are made really well. I have a Flowhive 2 and it has a small slope to the landing board which would not allow the front of the Excluder Entrance Guard to be flush with the front of the hive. Not a big problem that sanding a matching slope to the excluder won’t fix. After sanding the slope onto the excluder stands. It sits well on the slopes landing board, and is flush against the brood box too. It’s going to work excellently now.

Queen Excluder Entrance Guards

Worked as intended

I used to keep a queen in the hive after a swarm was captured and placed in a hive box. Forager bees figured out how to get in the hive with little problem. Bees bringing in pollen had some difficulty trying to get thru upper openings usually traveling down to the landing board level to make the entry into the hive. Removed after about 5 days and I knew the queen had made the hive her home.
