    Is this screen ok for the bottom of a TBH? It's smaller than an 8. Can minutes still fall through? ImageUploadedByBeekeeping Forum1461530174.186254.jpg

    Can't tell for sure. But they should. There are lots of studies that say that screened bottom boards are not that efficient in dealing with mites. You should think about some other form of treatment unless you are going to try treatment free beekeeping.

    good. I know mites will fall through that and bees and other problems [like hornets & wasps] can't
