Integrated top bar feature, we call the "Super Highway"

Specially designed top bars by Corwin Bell that improve the bees efficiency, health, ability to self ventilate the nest and improves overwintering, by providing passages for the bees to efficiently migrate through the honey stores.

Bees use these holes to travel
efficiently through the hive

Our specially machined "Passage Bars" are designed with four holes and when accurately aligned with consecutive bars provide the bees with tunnels through which they can easily travel from comb to comb.
