Hive Accessories

Hive World stocks the necessary hive accessories to ensure your hive is secure and safe both inside and out.

The entrance reducer (or mouseguard) allows the bees to control their entrance and assists them to keep out robbing bees and wasps as well as prohibiting mice free access to the cosy hive.  Easily reversed to prevent the bees leaving the hive when you want to travel but still allows them ventilation.

The nucleus disc works in much the same way on a smaller scale – this is generally used on the nuc box.

Queen excluders are used to prevent the queen laying brood in the honey supers.  This ensures the harvest of pure honey.  We recommend that you remove the queen excluder for winter to enable the queen to move into the warmest part of the hive when required.

Hive World stocks 3 styles of queen excluder:

  1. Metal Grid – built in bee space due to wooden frame as well as being easy to clean.  (Use our queen excluder cleaning shovel). https://www.hiveworld.co.nz/product/queen-excluder-cleaning-tool/
  2. Rigid plastic – built in bee space and easy maintenance.
  3. Flexible plastic grilles are unbeatable value for money and easy to clean by bending.

Hive straps hold your hive together through storms and animal attacks (bumping cows?).  Select from nylon or galv metal options.
