Bee Hive Stand for Ground Little Fire Ant (LFA) Control


Hive stand Stand

Little Fire Ant (LFA) is an agricultural problem, especially for honey bees.

This stand creates a physcial barrier which prevents LFA from entering the bee hive from the ground.

Note: This system does not protect hives from arboreal LFA that might fall onto the hive from above.
