Guardian© Entrance Reducer


Give your bees a chance against hive beetles from the start. Most people try to combat SHB after they are already in the hives.  We have had fantastic results keeping them out in the first place with these Patented Guardian’s. It uses red light technology to disrupt their attempts at finding the entrance, then is shaped to make it improbable to enter if they do find it. The shape of the entrance creates a shelf under the actual entrance that beetles cannot find their way through. If they try to land on the actual entrance, the honeycomb patterned entryway is just the right size they fall through onto the lower shelf, where they try all over again.  Fits 5, 8 and 10 frame langstroth or anyother type of hive. They also off the unique round entrance Guardian for upper entrances, nucs, and observation hives. Mounting screws are provided.

*Pro tip – Seal up any cracks or crevices large enough for a beetle to get though. Use an internal trap too incase there are some cracks you missed or there were a couple of beetles already in the hive when you put the Guardian on.
