Two- Queen Board
Combination Two-Queen / Snelgrove Board
This board gives Ron Brown’s Two Queen Board extra functionality.
Every week or so, a top entrance is closed, the underside entrance opened and a different
top entrance opened.
It can be used solely as a Snelgrove Board, if required, keeping the workers separated.
Queen excluder closed off
Queen excluder open
A queen excluder panel is fixed under the board with epoxy adhesive / pins.
The two wire mesh pieces are fixed over holes.
The opening panel is stainless steel sheet, pivoting on a stainless steel machine
The panel is opened via a stainless steel wire connected to a brass ring, which is
outside the hive.
Framing strips are fixed to the board with marine grade adhesive and brass pins.
Bottom bee space hives need strips both sides.
This board allows a queen excluder to be exposed below the top box, when the new
queen is laying, without any dismantling of the hive.
