Scratch and Dent, some knots or splits. Mostly cosmetic issues, but fully functional.

Our two-sided, reversible beehive bottom board has a 3/8" entrance on one side and a 3/4" entrance on the other. Why the two different-sized sides? The 3/4" size is standard height to use with a wooden entrance reducer (and the extra 1/2" below allows for air flow). You can turn it over to use the 1/2" opening as a smaller opening. This is just if you want a smaller opening - there's no other great benefit.

Made with rabbeted cross pieces to help keep out moisture. Comes fully assembled (screwed not nailed).

This beehive bottom board includes wooden entrance reducer for use with new hives.

Hints

  • Remember to clean out your bottom board in the spring. Debris builds up during the winter and can be easily removed with a hive tool.
  • Place your hive as level as possible but with a slight tilt forward, so the front of the bottom board is 3/8" lower than the back. This will prevent water from pooling in the back of the hive.
  • When painting the bottom board, remember to paint the "landing zone" that is exposed to outside elements.

  • 22" long x 14" wide x 1-7/8" high (8 frame)
