Queen Excluder 8 or 10 Frame


Used to "exclude" queens from laying in honey supers. This is a well-made, low cost alternative to wire excluders, is a necessary part of the Flow Hive, and fits it well. Choose either 8 or 10 frame.

Care must be taken using a queen excluder. Insure that the bees have stored enough honey below for brood rearing as well as food for expansion and winter survival prep. They often will not venture to store honey above it if this is not the case. Keep in mind a queen excluder is also a drone excluder and often drones may plug it up, getting stuck & dying as they try and squeeze through.

Queen Excluders were developed, as was most common beekeeping equipment, with commercial beekeepers in mind. Do not leave on long term.
