We are so excited about the launch of this new product!  It has been in development for three years, and now it is ready to protect your beehives from hornets, wasps, and robbing bees, and MORE, in a cost effective and totally natural, chemical-free way!

The concept is to use the natural instincts of hornets, wasps, and robbing bees to attract them to the trap housed under the vented Hive Defender® floor. 

The best bait for hornets and wasps is the sound and smell of an active beehive.  By making it pretty much impossible for them to slip in the front entrance by using the Ceracell Beast Blocker® mounted on your hive’s front entrance, they search for another way in. 

Above the trap is a grid that lets the sounds and smells of the hive leak out into the trap.  The hornets and wasps can’t help it, they just have to see if they can sneak into this delicious smelling and sounding hive.  Once in the trap, they can’t get out and eventually die of dehydration or fighting each other.  In fact, the Hive Defender® is so effective that in a short period of time it will have trapped and killed so many hornets and wasps that their colonies will weaken and die out.  By using the Hive Defender® you are cleaning up the neighbourhood!  You are killing off the nasties and making life so much easier for your bees. 

The Ceracell Hive Defender® also catches robbing bees in the trap.  Just as the name implies, robbing bees are thieves that look for the easy and safe way into the hive.  Like the hornets and wasps they end up in the trap and die too.  But don’t feel sorry for them.  Even if they come from other hives in your apiary you need to shut down the robbing behaviour.  It is counterproductive.  You only want your bees out foraging and bringing in fresh nectar and pollen, not using their energy to swap resources back and forth.

With the robbing bees getting trapped and dying in the Hive Defender® they don’t return to their home hive, so they can’t do a waggle dance to encourage more of their sisters to come over and rob some more.  So the Hive Defender® is effective at shutting down robbing behaviour.

  • Hive Defender floor with Beast blocker 4

    Posted by Janine Stubbs on 27th Mar 2024

    Moved an existing hive onto the Hive Defender floor. Added the Beast blocker the following morning before the bees started foraging. By the evening they had it sorted. Did wonder about the corners of the floor being diagonal and leaving a small hole under the super. Tried our second floor with a empty box and if it pushed to the front there is no hole.

    The hive defender is a great idea, but the green entrance plate does not seem to be able to be removable for cleaning ? Also the angle on the corners means that unless the hive box is a close fit there is an entry hole between the floor and hive box?

    So far looks fine and was easy to fit. Bees found new exit and entry easily.

  • Best Floor for Bees 5

    Posted by Nicole Crosby on 16th Nov 2023

    I've seen a big difference in the bees and the area they have to protect. The added ventilation on the floor board is a game changer and helps with the control of varroa and helps the bees remove any chalk brood and unwanted bits in the hive. Also the extra tray gives a good indication to what is happening around the hive. It stops robbing, wasps and acts as a base board to check varroa levels. I'm really thrilled to have added these to my hives I just wish I bought them from day 1 !
