I've never used mouse guards personally, but if I had to I would prefer the castellated type as then, all the bees have to do is drag the dead out, not having to lift them up to get them through one of the holes.ah, ok, thanks for that....i did cut the bottom of the circular holes on the guard to make it similar width to the middle of hole like a tear drop if you get me and they seemed to remove dead bees ok and its still mouse proof but thanks as every for the explanation...
Like these people who turn the entrance blocks upside down for winter, so then the bees have to lift the bodies over the step - and still have to get them through the mouseguard!
