Protect Your Hive With This Screened Beehive Bottom Board


  • Comes fully assembled
  • Insert - Stick Board Included
  • Made with galvanized mesh wire
  • Available for 5-frame, 8-frame, and 10-frame hives


Our screened beehive bottom board is perfect for temperature control during climate changes and provides assistance with pest management. A bottom board acts as the floor of your hive. By using a screened bottom board instead of a solid one, you allow varroa mites to fall through the screen without risking intruders from other hives entering your hive. In this way, the screened bottom board provides a proven means of non-chemical pest control. The mesh screen also allows for superior ventilation, ensuring that your bees are happy and healthy at all times.

If you are looking for a solid bottom board instead, we carry a line of top quality Solid Beehive Bottom Boards as well. We also sell wire mesh separately; just in case you need to perform any running repairs on your screened bottom board.

Mixed Reaction

Design was good but poorly executed. Bottom board had a good landing board, and insert slides nicely into bottom board from the rear. However, the combination of light pine wood and fastened with a single power stapler results in a weak joint. When shipped together in a configuration that they stressed each other, a stapled joint pulled out - including pulling the screen out from the metal flashing. I needed to disassemble the insert, put the screen under the flashing, and glue and screw the joint together. I would have paid more for better quality.
