The Bottom Board is the bottom floor of the hive. It is the foundation on which your beehive is built, making it a very important piece of beekeeping equipment.
This durable Solid Wood Bottom Board, made with tongue and groove construction, provides a 3/4″ entrance for bees on one side and a 3/8″ entrance on the other side. Our wooden bottom boards are MADE IN THE USA by us in our workshop in Kernersville, North Carolina. You can expect this Bottom Board to provide you with years of service.

This style of Top Feeder delivers syrup fast, and can hold several gallons. The bees walk up at one end. The screen goes over the dam and down to the bottom of the pan which will help to prevent bees from drowning. This design, with the opening on the lower side, maximizes the amount of food your bees will have access too. The bees enter through the bottom of the feeder, drink the syrup, and have little risk of drowning with the screen present over the opening of the feeder! Also handy for beekeepers, because it allows you to feed your bees without putting on a veil and lighting a smoker! All you need do is remove the telescoping top cover and pour your feed into the escape hole of the escape hole in your inner cover. You will love this design!
