Our Crown Board is built to last for years of use in the hive! 

Feed frames of stores back to your bees the easy way, by placing your frame within the crown board to avoid robbing or wasp problems.

Place our Crown Board underneath the Roof to provide proper working space for your bees.

Use in conjunction with a Bee Escape to remove bees from supers.

Masonite free and fully assembled using 2nd Grade Pine!

Multi-Function Crown Boards allow 2" (7 cm) extra space for feeding or treatments.

Full instructions:

The purpose of this board is that one crown board fulfils the purposes of feeding, treatments and swarm control.

Feeding – Our Rapid Top Feeder fits easily onto this Crown Board. The depth allows shallow feeders.

Treatments – All treatments work very well when you turn the board over.

Swarm Control – Firstly find all the queen cells and allow to reduce to a single visible queen cell.

Using the normal position, cover the hole in the Multi Function Crown Board.

Swarm control, Find the queen first !.

Place two frames of brood in a brood box above the Multi Function Crown Board and shake as many bees as you can from the box. Fill the bottom box with frames or replace existing ones. Release the queen into the bottom box, put the Multi Function Crown Board on followed by the second box full of bees with the yellow cap facing the opposite direction to the bottom box.

Take out the yellow cap, place the Multi Function Crown Board on top and close.

Flying and foraging bees will leave the top box with only nurse bees remaining. Leave for approximately two weeks for the cell in the top box to hatch, and hopefully your queen will be laying.
