Top Bee Space Split Board or Wedmore board

This is not much different to a crown board with a piece cut
from the rim. Any holes that exist in a crown board may be covered by
mesh or aluminium sheet.
I have found this type of board extremely useful along with the Artificial Swarming and Demaree System
for actually forming nucs in one operation along with swarm control.
However if you intend to do this you must make sure that the queencells used have come from a stock that you would wish to propagate.
|It may have been a sign of the times that Wedmore lived in, but he incorporated 25 mm verandahs on any edge that contained an entrance slot.|
