Screened Hive Stand was originally developed as a passive way to control Varroa mite, the screend bottom boards provide great ventilation for your colony. This helps control moisture in the winter as well as the heat in summer. The debris tray and the Varroa screen slide in from the rear. The debris tray is used for doing Mite checks. Coat the tray with light oil and slide back in to see the number of Mites falling off the bees in a 24 hour period. This will give you an idea of infestation levels. The Varroa screen can be removed for cleaning.
Plastic outer covers need no assembly or painting. They are tough, cast, one piece construction that is rot and termite proof.
