Beesmart robbing screens go on every hive. Full stop no exceptions. In winter mouseguards replace them late November through early March. No incidents have taken down a colony after using these. One had a brief seige last year so I closed off and alternated entrances on the screen and it stopped. No open feeding except for dry pollen in February. Genetics help. I have Carniolan and Russian mutts. The Italian hybrid is the culprit.
