    New composite boxes for the Euro Bee's and just got 6 empty native hives omg

    They have a couple of uses, screwed onto the front of the box its designed to stop vermin from nesting in brood boxes as well as a quick way to reduce the entrance or close up the hive for transportation but still have ventilation. Slide the yellow tabs to where you need them and away you go :)
