Warrè hive base board with beetltra beetle trap and landing board.
The landing board helps the beekeeper observe whats happenings the entrance better for less intervention, the bees also seem to love it and it’s perfect for sitting a little quartz crystal on which the bees seem to enjoy.
The back leg on this base is slightly higher (3mm) than the front to tilt the hive to assist any condensation to run out the entrance so the hive doesn’t get damp.
You will need to paint the landing strip and legs with an exterior water based acrylic paint before use.
Diatomaceous earth goes in the trap under the base.
