    Ive seen some suppliers here provide metal bottom boards.This is a sheet of metal over the wood.

    One supplier does not believe in them as he reckons they get cold and the bees dont like it.

    What's everyones thoughts on these Metal Bottom Boards

    Well I never heard of one before, but I don't think I like the idea. Are there any advertised advantages other than reduced wear?

    Maybe the mites would die quicker on the cold metal.
