8 Frame Candy Board

This 3″ high frame with a screen on the bottom provides another winter survival tool that allows bees to access fondant or sugar cake after they run out of the winter honey storage.  Fill both sides with sugar cake, fondant, and/or winter patties.  1/4" mesh bottom allows the cluster to feed directly up into the board.  Open center allows for  ventilation and moisture to rise up.  If using in conjunction with a Quilt Box, place the Candy Board under the Quilt Box.  If using alone, place between top box and inner cover.  Great as an insurance for a heavy hive, or as a help to a light hive for over-wintering.
