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
