The simple things are best
one crown board with many uses
Ideal for use with varroa treatments
feeders can be used without the use of an empty super
helps with swarm control
helps to prevent the spread of disease between colonies.
When needing to add a small spring feed for instance it can be done with the build of the multi-function crown board without the use or need for additional equipment.
When it comes to swarm control it helps with the simplest method of all, I will go into this part in another blog probably over winter when we are preparing for the spring.
This multi-function crown board has many uses but the most important aspect in my opinion is it will help with the control of disease spreading, speak your seasonal bee inspector who will tell you that the spread of EFB and AFB is largely done within an apiary by the beekeeper either not being clean enough between hives or using the same equipment like ekes. Our multi-function crown boards stay with the hive all season.
