Use this vertical slatted rack between your bottom board and brood box to give the bees some extra space and ventilation in the hotter months!

In the winter, a slatted rack keeps the brood chamber warmer so the queen can lay right to the bottom of the frame. In the spring and summer, when hive populations are at their largest, it provides a cluster space in the hive which can reduce swarming. Available for 8 frame hives. Slats run perpendicular to the entrance.

Fully assembled.

Note 1: Our slatted rack can be used in combination with our screened bottom boards. The slats run from back to front so that they are directly under the hive body frames. That way when the Varroa destructor mites fall naturally off the bees, they fall through the slats and through the screen.

Note 2: Install the slatted rack as pictured above. DO NOT turn over when installing in your hive.
