How To Use
This must be one of the quickest ways to vacate bees from parts of your hive.
Simply attach it to the underside of the beehive crown board using screws or nails, and replace the crown board under the last super you plan to take honey from. The bees will simply move around the hive and make their way downwards, but will not be able to make their back up. Why do this? Simply because when you remove the super full of honey to take back home for extraction it will be empty of bees!
- If you have a crown board with two holes, you will have to block one hole up before using the escape as the 8 way bee escape wont be large enough to cover two holes.
- You may need to place an empty super in the hive first to allow room for the bee escape. Alternatively, nail on strips of wood to your crown board to provide sufficient space for the bee escape to sit flush
