Another great innovation exclusively from Betterbee. Our Hive Portals are the next generation of hive entrances far superior to any other disk entrance on the market. Made of high strength but flexible ABS plastic, this disk entrance holds up to the rigors of beekeeping as no other can. The recessed center hold accommodates a countersunk bolt to properly secure the Portal to your nucs and prevents shifting of the washer. This Hive Portal features improved functionality with each quadrant clearly labeled for ease of use and identification, so you can quickly "dial" the entrance to your needed management tool.
*About Our Colors: This Hive Portal is uniquely colored to maximize your honeybee's ability to locate its unique home. Based on the principles laid out by the late Dr. Karl Von Frisch's pioneering work in honeybee vision, this Hive Portal is offered in Violet, Blue, Orange and Yellow. These colors are the most recognizable to honeybees, helping them locate their hive. Frisch's work was instrumental in establishing both that honeybees can see not only specific colors, but also that their behavior can be modified. Each color of the Hive Portal was selected and tested to help the bees narrow in on their nuc or hive.
Featured sections of our Hive Portal:
Ventilation-SHB Section- specifically sized to allow sufficient air-flow in through the entrance with the added bonus of helping prevent adult Small Hive Beetles from invading your hive.
Drone Section- to keep your Drones in, or others out.
Free Section- to allow uninhibited flight access in and out.
Queen Excluder Section- to prevent your queens from entering or leaving.
