This is the classic bee escape. Very effective and easy: Just put the escape between your honey supers and brood boxes for 24-48 hours to clear most of the bees from your honey supers. Make sure you put them hole side up or you’ll be filling the supers with bees instead – oops!
This sturdy device will last you harvest after delectable harvest. We think it’s a better option for hobbyist beekeepers than the fumigant/fume board method because it is not weather dependent and it does a better job of clearing out the honey supers than most fumigants do.
