Installing UD Intrances

A Revolution in Bee Hive Technology and Management

Honey bees using UD intrances

The Only Bee Hive Entrance That Replicates The Natural Entrance Opening Honey Bees Commonly Use In The Wild

There are  numerous ways to use the UD Intrance with modern single-walled hives as well as the potential to adapt hive configuration.

  • Bees recruit 3x more foragers on empty or honeycomb (Tautz 1996)

  • Decreased aggregation of guard bees in one site (lower entrance)

  • Hive boxes can easily be moved around;

  • decreased swarming due to congestion;

  • healthier bees;

  • multiple queens can be used;

  • easier and improved method of Rose Hive type beekeeping.

  • standard floor not needed.



This comes as a boxed set and provides everything required to set up a hive.


The recommendation is to have 3 intrances in the brood box and one in whichever box is used above the queen excluder.



Add-on Kit for multiple entrance configurations or for a second hive.


This kit is useful to add further UD Intrances in brood boxes or supers as required.
