The Upstairs Downstairs Hive Intrance is a new innovation developed by beekeepers Filipe Salbany and Norman Guiver. This product rethinks the way our bees enter hives and better replicates what occurs in a naturally occurring hive.
The pack comes with 4 intrance baffles, 3 are fitted inside a brood box and 1 in a super box (cold way).
The pack contains:
1 X Forstner drill bit
4 x Intrance baffles
4 x Ventilated Plugs
4x Solid Plugs
Screws, Instructions & Booklet
Designed to replicate a natural hive entrance
Allows for 360 degree defending of the entrance
Doesn’t let any pest over 7mm in (wasps, hornets, rodents, reptiles)
Foragers are able to deliver nectar directly to the super and brood boxes which can be run “cold way” whilst maintaining warmth within
Reduces energy expended by bees moving around the hive
Reduces draughts through the hive
Can treat for varroa without opening the hive
Reduces traffic through the brood box thus reducing swarming
Easy to block up to protect or move hive
