    What size/ kind of screen do you use on the bottom of your TBH ? I bought one that prevents no see ums, but I'm beginning to think the holes are too small for contaminates to fall out. I'd like some guidance on what type of screen to use and why. Thanks! Here's a picture of my TBH almost done ImageUploadedByBeekeeping Forum1461111993.775633.jpg

    use #8 screen. It lets the mites fall though.

    make sure it's stainless steel. Otherwise it will rust out quickly

    Cool thank u. Needed some details. Not 100% sure what #8 is. Home Depot or ace didn't know what I meant. 1/8 inch holes?

    If you cannot find #8 screen #6 will work, as for as ace not having it they can order it for you, you may have to buy more than you want but you will also find that it can be used a lot around bees.
