Made some Screen Bottom Boards

Finished building some screen bottom boards today.  Screen bottom boards have a few advantages.

  • Help reduce the varroa mites due to natural fall (The mites fall through the screen)
  • Provides a way for you to count mites
  • Provides increased ventilation for the bees
  • Reduces moisture in the hive over winter

I would recommend looking into building or getting some for your hives.

Might sell some on Trade me if I make any more or there is some interest.  Trade me is New Zealand's version of eBay for our overseas readers.
