First developed in 1900, the slatted rack is essential for overwintering and swarm control in the North. Allows the queen to lay lower in the comb and provides space for clustering which can reduce swarming. Install between the bottom board and brood chamber. Slats line up with frames so it can be used along with our Varroa Trap. Ships assembled.
The Assembled Bottom Board is the foundation to your hive. It provides the entrance to your hive and gives the bees proper space to work. Our Bottom Board is constructed with ¾" (1.91 cm) plywood that is stapled and glued together to give you years of service. Choose from untreated, treated, or painted. All bottom boards include an entrance reducer. Reversible.
