I am very impressed by this product! On my property there has to be at least 17 different kinds of ant species. I was having a problem with them wanting to go into the hive and successfully going into the upper box I'm using to supplemental feed, they figured out the sugar water was there and started attacking the hive. I couldn't be more pleased with this product!
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.
