Hi,
Bought 2 Apidea mating hives at Stoneleigh. Can anyone tell me what the red mesh is for as there were no instructions with them.
 
Have you got a pic,it sounds like the queen excluder to the feeder.
 
The large red mesh is for ventilation the queen excluder mesh is for the feeder the other one fits inside over the entrance fixed with a drawing pin so it can slide and shuts the queen in as it qe size regards jim
