Switch System for Escape Boards

Switch System for Escape Boards

This method has been used in conjunction with porter escapes to allow the beekeeper to permit the return of bees by an uninterrupted path. This is mainly so that 'wet' supers that have been extracted can be returned to the bees for cleaning up.




The blade that closes the hole has been made from tinplate in the past, but the ones we used to make at Apex had anodised aluminium slides. The slot and area that the blade slides over are treated with Petroleum Jelly so that any propolis, that the bees try to apply, will not stick.
