|Aligning the brood chambers on each other. These two chambers are|

and prevents the Queen from entering the supers and
laying eggs in the honey.
|An inner cover that's been specially cut to go on top of the excluder to|
allow worker bees to enter the supers.
|The supers are the two shallow chambers at the top|
of the hive where all the honey production
|An inner cover goes over the top of the supers and under the top|
to insulate the hive, keeping it from overheating.
|Top off the hive with a metal clad telescoping cover to keep|
the hive dry and enclosed.
|Put a weight on top of your hive to keep the top from|
