Crown Board

The crown board rests on top of the hive body but beneath the waterproof hive lid. Crown boards may be solid, or have circular feeder holes in its centre. Alternatively it may have two elongated holes which are designed to hold ‘Porter’ bee escape devices thus allowing the crown board to be a clearer board.
It is also sometimes known as a ‘quilt’.
Crown boards can be transparent. Older ones were made from glass but modern ones are made from Perspex. These are sometimes referred to as ‘glass quilts’.
