Base - meshed - ventilated- 8 or 10 Frames

(3 reviews) Write a Review

Available in both 8 and 10-Frame sizes

Timber is waxed, but not painted.

Helps controlling small hive beetles, better ventilation inside hive resulting in healthy colony. 

Mesh is pretty strong and can be removed after couple of years for cleaning purposes... If one has to....

    Mesh hive base

    Good base.. BUT
    not keen on the step öut"of the hives difficu"lt for bees to move things out bigger than the mesh
    Lots of gaps where mesh slides in , good for beetle.

    I bevelled entrance board to reduce water raining in so I can incline hive back to suit flowhive. (Yes I have regular hives tilted forward)

    These bases are great. This is the second one I've bought. Just fill the tray with vegetable oil & all those nasty SHB drown in the bottom of your hive :-)
