The most stress-free way (for you and the bees) to remove bees from a super! This board is placed between the supers and the brood chamber. The bees can easily leave the supers but cannot find their way back in. Comes fully assembled.
How it works: Bees navigate according to a very strict set of rules. When a bee reaches an obstruction (such as a wall), it will always travel to the right and follow that obstruction till it can go no further. It will never go left. In the case of the Triangle Escape Board, it is easy for the bees to leave - there are three convenient exits. However, they are unable to get back in - and so your Super will soon be empty of bees.
Hint: We advise you to not leave the Escape Board on any longer than 24 hours or the bees may find their way back in.
Hint: Make certain there are no holes in your supers through which the bees could reenter the hive.
