Beekeepers know that extracting honey from the hive can be a dangerous and time-consuming task. With a queen excluder, you can safely and efficiently remove honey without putting yourself or your bees at risk.
A queen excluder is a device that is placed between the hive and the honey super (the frame where the honey is stored). The metal barrier allows the worker bees to enter the honey super to collect nectar but prevents the queen from getting in. This ensures that the honey is not contaminated with eggs and remains clean upon harvest. If there is brood in the honey supers, it becomes very difficult to eliminate them from the combs, and as a result, extracting clean honey becomes much more challenging.
Queen excluders are an essential tool for any beekeeper and can make extracting honey a much safer and more efficient process. They are made of durable metal and welded with precision to ensure that the queen stays in the brood chamber. By using an excluder, you can maintain harmony and productivity within your hive.
Oue queen excluders are available in both 8-frame and 10-frame sizes, and each wire is crimped in the frame. They are made from low carbon steel, so they won't rust and will last for many seasons.
