    Default What size screen for the bottom of tbh.

    Where did you purchase your screen for the bottom of your hive? I went to lowes homeimprovement store and looked at there screen but the screens looked to tight. What size? I did pick up some plastic gutter gaurd that I thought I would double it up and make it work. Any body can tell where they purchased theres and maybe a p/n. Thanks

    I use regular old window screen, although it does sometimes have a problem with clogging up. I would recommend 1/8 inch hardware cloth.

    I get my 1/8" hardware cloth from Hardwareandtools.com.
    It runs around $15 for a 10ft by 3ft roll.

    Or you can salvage the screen from old package boxes, sew it together with wire as needed. Big box stores don't carry 1/8 hardware cloth, patronize your small local businesses first or you won't have any some day.
