Our two-sided, reversible bottom board has a 1/2" entrance on one side and a 3/4" entrance on the other. Made with rabbeted cross pieces to help keep out moisture, it is made with top-quality Eastern Pine. Comes fully assembled - screwed not nailed.
- Remember to clean out your bottom board in the spring. Debris builds up during the winter and can be easily removed with a hive tool.
- Place your hive as level as possible but with a slight tilt forward, so the front of the bottom board is 3/8” lower than the back. This will prevent water from pooling in the back of the hive.
- When painting the bottom board, remember to paint the “landing zone” that is exposed to outside elements.
