The core purpose of this research was to test the productivity differences between a conventional bottom board and a screened bottom board on a honey bee hive. The use of screened bottom boards may provide some advantages in an integrated varroa mite pest control program. The perception that the use of screened bottom boards affects productivity due to draft is a major impediment to beekeepers considering their use and adoption.
