The round bee escape is very popular, as it is mounted either as a single or in pairs, towards the centre of the board, and has two routes of exit and works well in preventing bees from re-entering the honey supers.

The plastic version is preferred by some as you can hold the board up to the light and see whether there is a dead bee lodged in one of the exit routes.

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.
