Country Rubes' Combo Deep Screened Bottom Board

Country Rubes' Combo Deep Screened Bottom Board


Availability: Out of stock


The Country Rubes' multi-function Screened Bottom Board makes hive management a breeze.   Although screened bottom boards were originally developed as a passive way to control the Varroa mite population in a hive, they can also provide great ventilation for your colony.


With standard bottom boards, the mites are able to latch on to passing bees and easily enter  the nest.  When a  screened bottom board is in use, the mites fall through the mesh and are not able to get back into the hive.  Using a screened bottom board gives the beekeeper an alternative to using  chemicals  to control mite populations. The Country Rubes'  Screened Bottom Board is weatherproofed and ready for use under your hive. These boards have been boiled in a solution of paraffin and tree rosin and will last for years. No other treatment is necessary. Paint will not stick to this finish. Comes with original Plain White Observation 'Sticky' Board. The Deep Screened Bottom Board is also designed to be used with the Hive Beetle Tray and Beetle Baffle (sold separately) which help control the beetle population in the hive.
