The new ANEL Entrance, Ventilation & Feeding Plug can be used in many ways. As a feeding plug on the top cover, as ventilation or entrance in the frontside / backside of the top cover, as a small entrance on the side of the beehive protecting the bees from potential enemies, as ventilation on the sides, or as a big hive entrance. An alternative beehive entrance is very important. In case of plunder we leave the small entrance open so that only few bees can come in and the intruders can be handled. We close the front doors and lead the bees on the alternative entrance which they already know and use. For even more drastic measures if we want to prevent plunder, we just seal the plugs on the top cover.
Some other examples of how to use the New ANEL Entrance, Ventilation & Feeding Plug:
During spring if we want to use a second hive body, it is very useful to have a second entrance in the upper hive body for beehive decongestion. A second entrance also helps bees collect honey easier, especially if we use a queen excluder. (See demonstration video )
