Looks interesting, and is more complicated than the triangle boards I use. What is the purpose of the CDs?

Dave says:
The shiny CD Roms stop the bees clustering at the corners and blocking the exits (any clustering bees fall off the shiny surface), they also provide a baffle between outgoing and bees and those attempting the return journey.

Thanks, now all i have to do is try it out.
