The queen bee excluder is meant to keep the queen out of the honey supers, as if she lays eggs in the honey supers, it will be hard to harvest clean honey. This metal queen excluder is placed over the brood chamber. The screen is wide enough to let the workers through, but too narrow for the queen. It is made of galvanized steel sure to stand up to years of use.

Hint: If you are concerned that your excluder will slow your bees down when storing nectar in the supers, just turn it sideways. The bees can go around the edges, but the queen USUALLY stays in the middle of the hive and is excluded. Once you are confident your supers are drawing enough workers, you can turn the excluder to its traditional placement, but remember to check for your queen up in the supers!
