I didn’t read all the posts, but I like the screened BB with the drawer. I’ve been using them for years, and I am in the mountains of upstate NY with lots of snow and cold. It’s another tool I use to monitor the hive, what the bees are doing. I can see mite drops after OA vap, see cappings in the winter and other debris that helps me out. And yes they use the bottom box.
PS I DO NOT use them for ventilation.

I do not know where he gets them, I just paint olive oil on my plastic sticky board, and the shb and mites get stuck in it. I use screened bottom boards with a coverboard to prevent heavy drafts in winter
