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.

For an demonstrational video on how The Hive Defender works, watch the video below.

The Hive Defender is placed on top of the old, reversed, floor and the hive is then placed back together. The drawer is at the back of the hive for removing dead wasps or robbing bees. The bees from the hive will learn very quickly to use the reduced entrance. The formerly weak hive it was defending is now as strong as any in the apiary.
