This version of the robber screen is sized to fit single and double nucs. The robber screen is used to discourage robbing in weak colonies. The idea is simple. Robbers attempt to enter the hive by flying straight into the entrance. The screen prevents them from entering. Resident bees leave the entrance, crawl up the hive front and exit through a slot in the top of the screen. They reenter the hive through the same slot. It is always best to add these screens before robbing gets started. A colony can have all its stores removed very quickly once robbing gets started.
The screen is easily attached to the hive using 2 wood screws (included). The robber screen is available in sizes to fit 8 and 10 frame hives.
Please note that plastic hive portals need to be removed before attaching the robber screen.
