9 Gate Davy Board

Recommended Posts

Who has heard of or used a Davy board?

Ive had one for a few years and have got it running this season.

It sits on a brood box and has two four frame nucs placed on it.

It has two Queen excluders and to division boards (Cloake system), one for each nuc.

It has an array of gates to all sides and gates on its lower edge that work for the brood box.

The four frame nucs can be used as starter boxes/ nucs / finishers

It is made by Davy Kerr in Tokoroa. I have seen them, but not used one.

When I brought it from him I didnt really understand it and to be honest Im not sure if I fully understand all its possibilities yet.

The guy seemed like a genius to me, very untidy and eccentric.

He's still around. I see he has a swarm collection listing on another NZ based  selling website.
