G type bottom board is designed specifically for the North American market to be compatible with the existing wooden hives. These bottom boards are equipped with a pollen trap and Varroa screen.
Just set your brood box on top of the assembled bottom board. If desired, you can also secure the bottom board to your brood box with the preinstalled screws under the bottom board. This enables you to use the provided flight board lock as well. (see pictures for lock application)
The bottom boards can be used safely in all climate conditions. The unique grill design enables ventilation in extremely hot weather, while helping remove moisture from the bee hive with extreme temperature changes. Balancing the moisture inside the hive results in maturing honey sooner, thus increasing hive productivity.
The bottom boards are equipped with a Varroa mite trap and drawer. The mites that fall down get trapped in the drawer and cannot return to the hive. The Varroa mite can be monitored and controlled by routinely inspecting the mite trap drawer.
The pollen traps on the bottom boards are specially designed to prevent bee injuries while collecting pollen. A built in pollen tray enables collecting the pollen hygienically. Remove the red plug and insert the pollen collecting board and tray to use (see pictures). NOTE: Pollen is essential for bees since they need it for new brood! To collect pollen, use the pollen trap only during high pollen flow, and take it out on the same day. It is not recommended to use continuously
The bee hive entrance holes can be opened or closed very easily. The entrance can also be width-adjusted based on the climate.
The air channels built into the board prevents colony overheating during transportation.
The boards are built tough to absorb impact and are durable.
Easy to clean
Compatible with your Langstroth 10 frame wooden beehive!
