Shim for Wooden Hives

A handy way to make space to provide food or medicine to your bees!


This rim is placed between the outer cover and your top super to create a 1 1/2″ space. Place top feeding pollen substitute or applying pesticide patties on the top of the frames in the created space. When using the shim to apply varroa treatments that fumigate the hive, the hole should be plugged. The entrance can be sealed with a plug which can be removed for a winter entrance or for ventilation in the summer.

The 10 frame shim fits both 10 frame wooden hives and BeeMax hives.

NOTE: This product comes unassembled, but are pre-drilled and include screws.
