A REVOLUTION IN BEE HIVE ENTRANCE DESIGN AND MANAGEMENT
BeeSpaceX allowes the modification of brood boxes
There is no need for a 'standard' floor and a piece of wood that fits under the main brood box is all that is needed.
Typically 3 UD intrances are used in the brood box, but small colonies can be limited to 1. An entrance that provides access to the brood area is important so that the bees can stimulate the queen with the nectar/pollen flow. If the enrance is too far from the brood nest the laying rate is decreased.
The First Hive Entrance Innovation in 170 Years
Bee colonies differ in size, temperament and productivity. Apart from some small variations in bee hive size, all the entrances are found at the bottom of the hive and tend to be too large.
The 'Natural' Hive
The modified entrances replicates the natural colony entrance using propolis, enhancing hive hygiene, productivity, calmness and management.
