This Escape Screen works just like a bee escape except faster and better. It is a fast and great way to take off honey. We have experimented with all styles of bee escapes and escape boards; this is, by far, the best one we have used. You place the escape screen under the capped honey you want to take off with the screened triangle facing down. The bees will leave the honey super through the triangles into the brood nest and they cannot return. Rate of clearing will vary with the weather.Be aware of robber bees trying to enter the honey super.
