The porter escape, in this instance mounted singly in the centre of the escape board is arguably our most popular escape.  The escape has two exits past "feelers" that prevent re-entry but offer a good wide exit to the departing bee.  It is mounted over a surprisingly generous hole, so there is good pheromone transmission attracting the bee to the escape.

This is used extensively by commercial beekeepers, usually in the pairs configuration, and they keep coming back for more, so you know it works.

The item you are viewing here, is the porter escape mounted on a 50 mm hive mat, assembled and ready to go in the hive.

Note that there needs to be plenty of room below the escape board for the exiting bees to easily leave the honey supers.  Severe congestion near the escape exits make clearing the honey supers problematical.  So if not using a deep 50mm escape board, a spacer rim needs to be added below the honey supers and the escape board.

You may want to consider treating your escape board rim.  We have available for sale copper naphthenate, and of course we now have the fantastic totally chemical free wood preservatives WB1 and WB2 from Gripset.  Check out our new products to learn more about this great product.
