Optional Hive Components

The Queen Excluder

The Queen Excluder is an Optional Hive component.

It prevents the queen and drones (and bigger worker bees) from passing through.

Main use: Separating the brood chamber from the honey super, resulting in combs solely filled with honey, no pollen, no brood.

Other use: Hive management, e.g. limiting brood nest area, restricting the queen’s space of movement.

Materials: Galvanised steel, stainless steel, bamboo, plastic.
