Flow Hive 2 entrance reducer dimensions

Setting up the new FH2 7 frame auracaria. Can someone advise on (metric) dimensions to make an entrance reducer to help the girls settle in please? Thanks

Hey Jason, a big welcome to the forum where you will find lots of reading with advice and tips. Your only a few k’s from me and would be happy to show you a multi purpose bit of kit, it reduces the hive entrance, can be turned upside down to lock the bees in if you need to move the hive but still allows ventilation, stops geckos, mice and cane toads getting inside the hive and dead easy to fit.
I’m at Coolum Beach, phone 0456710016 n pop over for a coffee and a bee chat.
Regards Peter

Peter,

I use these metal entrances also … it helps keep the local mice :mouse2: out of the hive too. Mice can really damage frames quickly. I have made custome wood reducers also in my mini-woodshop.

Cheers
Gerald
