A REVOLUTIONARY APPROACH TO BEE HIVE ENTRANCES

An Entrance Invention Developed Through Observation & Lessons In Apiculture
​FOR THE COLONY
  • Increased pollination and honey production (foragers recruit 3 times more foragers on honeycomb than brood comb)

  • Decreased robbing 

  • Improved hive protection from wasps

  • Distinct 'landing strip' that becomes coated in propolis thereby improving hive hygiene 

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

​FOR THE BEEKEEPER
  • Ability to place a brood box directly on a board, thereby negating the need for a standard floor.

  • Increased pollination and honey production (foragers recruit 3 times more foragers on honeycomb than brood comb)

  • 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.
