The honeyside entrance gate replicates the entrance opening honey bees often make on their own
In the wild, bees enter through small holes, commonly between 5/32" and 1" diameter in their hive. These are easier to defend against wax moth, wasps and other predators. Bees build a propolis barrier or curtain on the inside of the nest if the entrance is exposed, to deflect the wind and for colony defense.
MEET THE honeyside ENTRANCE gate!
Affordable & easy to install
Made of natural thermoplastic polyester that is derived from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane, and recycled wood fiber, these Honeyside Entrance Gates resemble an entrance that the bees would create on their own using propolis. After drilling a 1" hole, they simply screw into place on the honeyside of a hive.
NOTHING OVER 1/4 in. WILL GET INTO YOUR MODIFIED HIVE!
NOT WASP, HORNET, WAX MOTH, NOR RODENT, CAN FIT!
Asian Giant Hornets are much too large to get in and demolish your hive during their slaughter phase!
**Please note... Honeyside is not responsible for any hive loss, there are simply too many things that can wrong with any hive set up**
