FAQ

FAQ:
1.) **Can the Guardian be left on all year: We do not recommend leaving the Guardian on the hive at temperatures below 40 F - Hive beetles are not active below this temperature and damage may occur to the Guardian 
2.)  **Can the Guardian be used as a mouse guard: The Guardian was not designed to be a mouse guard and significant damage may result.
3.)  **Prototype Guardians have a solid landing board in a one piece design - The landing board feature will be honeycombed in the commercial version. The commercial version will consist of 2 pieces that interlock.
4.)  **Does it come in different sizes?  Currently the Guardian comes in one size. This size accommodates 10 frame 8 frame and Nucleus hives. We may offer different sizes in the future.

Common practice: 
Tilting a hive forward is important for anyone using a solid bottom board because rainwater can accumulate on the alighting board or blow through the entrance and become trapped inside the hive. Screened bottom boards with holes large enough for beetles to pass are not recommended for installation.

We recommend making sure your hives are free from cracks and crevises that the beeltes can access for entry.   Make sure entrance reducers are tight with no gaps and that the Guardian is seated tightly to the bottom board.

We do not guarantee that all small hive beetles will be kept out of the hive. The Guardian is simply a beetle deterrent and not a trap.  It has been deisgned to aid the bees in protecting their hive.

Standard hive maintenance is required. Always check your Guardian's integrity with each inspection.
