The RobberGards™ is an ingenious device to fool wasps and robber bees and stop them from getting into the colony.
These unwanted visitors are guided to potential food in the hive largely by sense of smell.
They go straight to the vent holes at bottom of the RobberGards™and try to get in, without realizing the entrance is at the top.
These intruders very soon give up and go looking for food elsewhere.
The bees learn within 24 hours how to access their own hive and it doesn’t stop them carrying out all their normal duties.
