Standard Bee Escapes, bee escapes are one-way doors which let the bees leave the supers but not return. The escape is placed beneath the supers of honey to be removed. (When removing more than one super of honey from an individual hive, we recommend placing an empty shallow super under the escape board to allow more space.) Supers are usually free of bees within 2 - 24 hours and no chemicals are used. This bee escape is placed in the center opening of an inner cover sold separately).
