Polystyrene Crown Board/Inner CoverModel: W11970
Crown board is protecting upper part of bee nest. It has a form of flat plate with thick edges.
The crown board for Lyson Polystyrene hives can be used as a
- Propolis Collector
- inner cover: to stop bees from building within the top cover
- Extra Ventilation within the hive
- Jar feeder
There are 5 to 9 round vents for ventilation of a bee nest. Ventilation intensity can be controlled by opening or closing vent holes in the crown board’s surface.
Bees can be fed from “twist” jars with syrup or fed through round holes in crown board. In order to do that, closed jars with perforated lids should be placed ‘bottom up’ on “spiders” in crown board’s holes.
It comes with polystyrene plugs to close the holes if needed. The center spiral pieces are removable to use it as a gate to access the top cover and exit to hive. It fits perfectly between the top cover and allows latches to lock perfectly.
