Langstroth Solid Cedar Bottom Board

Two-sided, reversible bottom board with a 3/8" entrance on one side and a 3/4" entrance on the other.


Made with rabbeted cross pieces to help keep out moisture. Includes wooden entrance reducer for use with new hives.

Fully assembled, screwed (not nailed).

Usage Suggestions

  • Remember to clean your bottom board in the spring, to remove debris that builds up during the winter (easily removed with a hive tool).
  • Ensure your hive is generally level, but with a slight tilt forward (so the front is 3/8” lower than the back). This helps prevent water pooling in the back of the hive.
  • When painting, remember to paint the landing zone exposed to outside elements.
