Queen Excluder - Plastic - 10 Frame

Queen Excluder - Plastic .jpg


The basic function of a queen excluder is to ensure that the queen does not lay eggs in the honey supers. This ensures the honey within these supers stays clean. Queen excluders are placed in between the brood boxes and the honey supers. They are carefully designed so that worker bees can pass through the screen but the queen cannot as she is too large to fit through the openings. Before adding a queen excluder to a hive, we recommend having at least 20” of developed brood frames (This equates to a total of two filled 9 5/8” boxes or three filled 6 5/8” boxes). Having these developed brood frames ensure that your bees will have enough pollen, honey and brood to successfully grow their colony throughout the season. If queen excluders are put on too soon or if you have not given your bees enough space, this potentially could cause your bees to swarm. Timing is of the essence when adding a queen excluder. Although using a queen excluder is a personal preference, we always use them because we hate destroying brood when extracting honey! Made from Plastic, our 10-frame queen excluders are very durable and light. They come fully assembled and ready-to-use.They measure 19.75”long by 16.5” wide.
