Hive Parts

Triangle Escape Board

This is a fantastic tool for honey harvest.  Place it triangle side down between the hive and honey supers (and make sure all entrances above the board are closed up.)  After a couple of days the super will be empty of bees.  Here's why:  it they are walking along a surface and encounter a barrier, they will always turn right.  The triangle acts like a maze they can exit but not enter back up into the super
