Building Your Own Bottom Boards For Your Bee Hives
This past weekend the Viking in my life built some bottom boards for our bee hives. It was a project that went fairly quickly one of those projects to do over the Thanksgiving weekend.
He fashioned a design similar to the “Beltsville Screened Bottom Board” its kind of like a false bottom instead of a screen bottom board and it sets about an inch or so above the existing bottom board. This allows the screen to catch mites and other stuff that doesn’t belong in the hives.
