A queen excluder is a device that is placed between the hive's brood boxes and the honey super (the box where the honey is stored). The metal barrier allows the worker bees to enter the honey super 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 it from the comb, and as a result, extracting clean honey becomes much more challenging.
Our queen excluders are available in both 8-frame and 10-frame sizes, and each wire is crimped in the frame. They are made from durable, low carbon steel and precision welded. This ensures an excluder that is both highly effective and lasts for years to come!
