The mesh floor is a new product.  I have become obsessed with good ventilation after I “cooked” a good swarm in a standard brood-box with just a ventilation strip over the entrance.   Made with 4mm gap stainless steel mesh, a deeper bee space to the bottom of the frames and a standard fixed narrowed entrance for wasp, robbing bees and mice defence, this is a winner in my book.

Not only does the mesh floor give great ventilation but any natural varroa mite fall will see the little beast out of the hive.  This prevents them from latching onto the next bee that comes along, so it is helping reduce the overall mite levels.  Also, you could put a varroa measuring sticky board underneath to measure mite levels with a powdered sugar test (see the article on varroa management for details).
