Having lost a hive to ant invasion, we are so happy to have found this product. It is light weight but the 8-frame boxes are very secure. Easily leveled, and easy to maintain the barrier fluid (we use olive oil). Excellent product!

Ants are always taunting my hives- since I purchased this stand I have not seen one ant on my hives. It makes me rest easy.
