Metal Queen excluders prevent the queen from entering and producing brood in honey supers. The spaces are large enough for worker bees to move through but small enough that the queen is unable to fit through. This queen excluder is made from high quality metal that prevents rusting, warping, and oxidizing. These excluders have a long life span - they are heavy duty and built to last!
Plastic Queen Excluder makes it easy for your bees to pass through while preventing the queen from laying in your honey supers. Frequent cross-bracings on this plastic queen excluder make for exceptional strength and long life. Compared to the metal queen excluder, it's easy to clean wax from these plastic excluders. Simply put them in the freezer overnight and gently bend them once they are frozen. The wax will just pop off.
