I've seen this before and it's a queen trap. It traps the queen when a swarm tries to leave a hive. The workers go through the screen that looks like a queen excluder and the queen is forced up into the other portion and can't get out.
Queen AND drone trap. Also used to restrict drone flight from during queen rearing...prevents unwanted drones from flying.
Also used to trap drones from drone mother colonies for sperm collecting, for doing instrumental insemination.

We use them to control swarming when we are not able to be in all the bee yards ,we use a slightly different version.a fairly effective tool.
Queen and Drone trap, good for keeping swarming down.. WONT keep a virgin queen in though.
Need find, don't see them around to much like this.
We build\manufacture one but don't sell to many.
Nice picture, it is nice to see other peoples creations.
