I’m curious if anyone knows whether or not the entrance reducers made by paradise for their beebox poly hives will exclude the queen or drones. I like it as a reducer for ease of selecting sizes of entrances or shutting down totally during robbing. But for making splits does it prohibit the queen from leaving on mating flight or returning from? Thoughts?

I think Paradise just redesigned the entrance reducer; the old ones do restrict drones, but the new ones do not. I don't think either one restricts queens. Wood entrance reducers fit height-wise, but they have to be cut a little short lengthwise.

I run 60 paradise hives. Love 'em!
