Plastic Queen Excluder - 10 Frame
The 10-Frame Plastic Queen Excluder is an effective, yet affordable solution to keeping your queen in your brood boxes and brood out of the honey supers during a nectar flow. Workers can still fit through the grates to pack in honey but the queen and drones can not.
Why Use a Queen Excluder in Beekeeping?
Ensure a Productive Hive: Maintaining a productive hive is the cornerstone of successful beekeeping. A queen excluder helps you achieve this by preventing the queen bee from laying eggs in honey supers. This means your precious honeycomb frames remain free from brood, guaranteeing pure, unadulterated honey extraction.
Organized Honey Collection: Our Plastic Queen Excluder ensures that honey production is neatly contained in the supers above the excluder. With the queen restricted to the lower brood chambers, you can easily collect honey from the upper supers without fear of disturbing the brood nest. This not only simplifies honey harvesting but also reduces the stress on your bees. (*Note: Queen Exluders should be removed after honey harvest so that the queen can move with the colonyÂ to stay warm and fed through the winter.)
Optimal Space Management: Managing space within your hive is crucial. The queen excluder helps create a separation between the brood chamber and the honey supers. This segregation allows your colony to organize itself more efficiently, resulting in better honey production and a healthier hive.
Durable Plastic Construction: Our queen excluder is made from high-quality, durable plastic that is both lightweight and long-lasting. It can withstand the rigors of beekeeping season after season.
Precise Spacing: Designed with the perfect bee-spacing in mind, this excluder allows worker bees to pass through freely while preventing the larger queen from entering the honey supers.
Easy to Clean: Cleaning and maintenance are a breeze with this plastic queen excluder. Simply remove it from the hive, scrape or scrub it off, and it's ready to go.
10-Frame Design: This queen excluder is designed to fit 10-frame standard Langstroth style bee hives, ensuring compatibility with your existing equipment.
