Inner cover/bee escape Warré
- 1-2 weeks
An inner cover for Warré beehives equipped with a bee escape to chase the bees out of the supers full of honey. Can be used as a simple inner cover.
The bee escape is a kind of mini maze that lets the bees go down but not easily back up. When all the bees are out of the supers you can safely harvest the honey.
Place the bee escape the evening before the harvest, under the supers to be harvested. The next morning, the majority of the bees will be in the bottom box.
