Queen Excluder

The queen excluder is a screen made from metal, wood or plastic, to several designs. It sits above the brood area of a bee hive. Its purpose is to limit the queen’s activities to the designated brood area and to prevent her from spoiling honey stores with eggs and brood. The spacing between the bars in the queen excluder only allows worker bees to pass through.
