    Which escape board do you use?

    Ae James,I was down ur ways last weekend visiting whanau in wainui on banks peninsula.I'll send you a pm when I get sorted,things are looking up this coming season. Ive made a decision to go with a two corner and centre escape boards,with thick rim.Looks like Dansar has plans to manufacture a few.

    Which escape board do you use?

    Awesome feedback peeps,lots of different ways/ideas and thanks for the pics Daley. I like the sound of Tristan's fly home method.Harvesting this season was a pain with robbers and the theory of coming to an apiary,lifting off clean honey supers without too much bee activity sounds like the go for me.
  13. Kia ora Forum whanau,been awhile since I've posted, lots going on. Question for all the Beeks who use escape boards ,which do you prefer and why? I'm looking at purchasing a few and there's a few options...thick rim vs thin rim,4 corner vs 2 corner,corner type vs central round type etc. Do some work better/quicker than others? Your observations would bee appreciated.

    Is zero tolerance for export honey only? What level is acceptable for home honey?
