    Frame for wired excluder

    Has anyone made a frame for a wired queen excluder? The only way it looks doable is by routing a slot or something but that seems over complicated so I wondered if anyone had done something more straight forward?

    In my first 24 hrs I learnt that I couldn't lift a hive plus two supers all at once....and that I definately wasn't allergic to bee stings!

    Anyone ever try one of these to move supers/brood about? They're designed for fishing tackle but seem to be perfect for the job? h**p://www.powawalker.co.uk/index.htm
