    Default screen bottom

    are the screened bottom boards for mites and beetles the same size mesh size (opening size) or are beetles mesh bigger since they are?

    thanks

    Screened bottom boards normally use number 8 hardware cloth (eight squares per inch).
    Just some thoughts.

    Small hive beetles crawl through number 8. Put a tray of oil under the screen and they will not crawl back in the hive.
