    Default How to make a moving screen?

    Does anyone have simple plans or can you direct me to some for building a moving screen?
    The reason I want one is it is a pain to staple the entrance of a hive closed after catchi
    ng a swarm. Then you have a the staples stuck your hive.
    I just thought there must be an easier way to close the entrance but allow the rest of the swarm to enter.
    Also, we will be picking up some nucs and transferring them into our hives at the supplier for the ride home. I thought we could use the moving screen fir that as well.
    Any advice?

    You could use a nuc or large nuc with a disc entrance. There are nuc plans available around here, and disc entrances are available at several bee supply companies. Disc entrances often have a 'screened' off section so you can close them up and move them with very little effort.

    It's the third one on your post Specialkayme...I think it would be easier to make.
    The second one is more permanent.
