Is it this? http://westernbeestore.3dcartstores.com/Varroa-Screen_p_152.html

That's a screen you put on top of the solid bottom board that allows you to slide in a sticky board under it, on top of the solid bottom board. Just saw this the other day.

Edited to add:
Here are some more: http://www.mannlakeltd.com/beekeeping-supplies/category/page33.html There are two on that page - the Assembled Wooden Varroa Screen Trap and Assembled Wooden Varroa Screen Trap with Drawer (don't have to take the hive apart for the last one).

Oh, that sounds cool. I'd like to know about that one, too.

I wonder if one can be made fairly easily? Make a shim shorter than the bottom board so that when it's fully inside the hive bottom it leaves a space along the front for the bee entrance, attach #8 hardware cloth to the top, then just put a sticky board underneath (trimmed to fit), and slide the whole thing in. Does that sound like what you're looking for? I'm trying to think of what would be good to use for the shim - thin enough to fit, but thick enough to keep the bee legs from going through the hardware cloth and touching the sticky board. Not coming up with anything at the moment, but bet I would if given enough time in Home Depot.
