Easier Beekeeping with All-In-One Adjustable Hive Entrance

ProtectaBEE™ simplifies beekeeping with an adjustable entrance that keeps out wasps, hornets, mice, robbing bees, skunks, and other predators.

Protects from wasps, hornets, and other hive pests

Prevents robbing

Delivers treatments through apivectoring

Regulates temperature

Protection + Treatment Delivery System

Red cones are difficult for predators to see, while smaller openings allow for guard bees to more easily protect the hive from robbers.

Treatments can be added to the "IN" drawer to fight pests and diseases inside the hive, such as Varroa mites and American foulbrood using innovative bee vectoring technology.

Entrance Reducers + Feeding Station

Two size entrance reducers can keep your hive warm in cooler weather. Use both entrance reducers on each side, or add a solid insert on one side.

Solid inserts provide an accessible drawer for adding supplements, pollen substitutes or fondant without disturbing the hive.

Reduce Outbound Traffic

Turn the cone inserts on both sides to "IN" to reduce outgoing traffic and guard bee activity while mowing or trimming around your hives.

Solid Inserts

Solid inserts can be added for moving hives short distances or to temporarily close for protection from pesticide spraying nearby.

No Inserts - Protected Landing Board

Remove inserts during heavy nectar flow or when robbing is not an issue to provide an extra large landing board protected fom rain, wind and overhead predators.

Bee Vectoring Lets the Bees do the Work for You.

The ProtectaBEE™ allows bees to carry powders INTO the hive to improve health and simplify beekeeping. Our patent-pending design ensures that the bees transfer the powders throughout the hive at the right concentration while minimizing loss to the external environment.

1. Bees return to the hive. 2. Bees enter the ProtectaBEE™. 3. Bees walk throuhg bee friendly powders. 4. Bees spread the powder throughout the hive.

Beekeeping will be easier, bee-frienl, and with less backpain wiht bee vectoring.


Casing now comes with small hive beetle monitor. Load with Beetle bait for monitoring.


Fits 10-frame Lagstroth hives and 7-frame Flow® hives.

Beyond providing the right medication at the right time, the wisdom that comes along with that service is really going to help the beekeeping industry, certainly starting with the hobby beekeepers.

The ProtectaBEE™ will be a huge time saver. We could go through 24 hives in 20 minutes as opposed to a few hours when needing to manually open the hives.

The fact that science backs the ProtectaBEE™ gives us the confidence that we're giving the best quality and best types of products to the bees to make them better and healthier overall.

I think getting Varroa under control is the most exciting thing about the ProtectaBEE™ and just using it in
a practical manner, the bees are just coming and going and I’m loving it.

Mike Barber

We really like the idea, and we can’t wait to start using it with some treatments. Already it makes an
excellent entrance reducer, as it’s multi-purpose, we’re pretty impressed so far.

Bruce Richardson

It works wonderful, it only took the bees about two hours to figure it out.

Richard Ince

If I were to purchase a ProtectaBEE™ right now, I’d put one all my hives as a hobby beekeeper, it’s a lot
easier to start out with what you need.
