Queen excluder


The queen excluder is one an essential element of the hive - at least, for anyone hoping to harvest honey!

The excluder has tiny spaces that are just large enough to let the worker bees through, but not the queen, as her abdomen is slightly larger. Thus, she is excluded from the honey box, which prevents the mixing of honey and brood (eggs, larvae and nymphs!)
