The Hive DefenderTM is a supplementary hive floor (base or bottom) that is mounted on a standard wood floor. It's purpose is to protect the hive from wasps, robbing bees, and mice. It also improves ventilation with the mesh floor. With a pull out rear drawer it can be used with a varroa sticky board or white paper to measure varroa levels.

It is ideal for use on weak hives or new splits. If you want to reduce the ventilation plug the holes with corks or cover with tape after the robing threat is over.
