You want to be checking the state of the brood chamber, the super and the general health of the beehive. This is done best by having the confidence of the quality beesuits or protective gear you use.

We Also Recommend this... Queen Excluders

Koningin Uitsluiters / Separators - essential for keeping the queen bee out of the honey

Queen excluders are used to keep the queen bee from being able to lay eggs inside the super chamber where the honey is stored.

The queen excluder is sold separately to the bee hive and is very useful when it comes time to harvest honey.

The queen will lay eggs only in the brood [broei kas] chamber if she cannot access the super [heuning kas] chamber above when a queen excluder is used to prevent the queen bee from getting through.

The benefit of the queen excluder is that when it comes to harvesting honey from the super chamber there are no eggs or larvae in the honeycomb and ONLY ripe honey is ready for harvesting and filtering.

Together the Bee hive and Queen excluder make a great team!
