A Cloake Board is a special piece of equipment used in beekeeping to facilitate raising queen bees. Invented by Harry Cloake, the cloake board, or floor without a floor, consists of a queen excluder mounted to a wooden frame. 

The Cloake method of queen rearing involves a series of stages which divide a colony into a queenright lower colony and a queenless upper colony to improve acceptance of grafted larva, or to facilitate creation of queen cells naturally.

Our Cloake board we have created has a wooden rim with a built in queen excluder, and a removable stainless steel sheet to isolate the bottom and top boxes of the hive. 

For a video on how you can use a cloake board to produce queens, watch our demonstration video below.

    I have seen one of these demonstrated on YouTube and could see the benefits of using one. I can say that this is beautifully made but as I am still new to bee keeping I have not had the chance to use it yet. They are hard to find so I was happy when I discovered this one .Postage was very fast and it looks great.

    I thought it was too long, ok as a landing board but not suitable if you are just closing/opening the bottom box rather than turning the boxes etc
