This dual purpose screen is attached to the front of your hive to keep robbing in check. Place it on the hive entrance in the evening, so the bees learn the new entrance route in the morning. The hidden top-entrance confuses robbing bees and yellow jackets, thus breaking their robbing cycle. The lower entrance is closed when the product is used as a robbing screen.
The stainless steel screen allows the bees front-entrance ventilation when moving a hive. Stainless steel mesh stands up to weather better and does not have the toxic problems of hot-dipped galvanized screens. We also apply a resin seam around the stainless steel screen to reduce snagging and to improve durability. The entrance doors are also stainless steel.
