Can drones pass through a queen excluder? If so what size hardware cloth would I need if I wanted to only allow workers to pass through?

Thank you.

No, drones can't pass thru.

#5 is the largest that will only allow workers through and not queens or drones.  Workers can squeeze through #6 but it's a lot of work.  #7 (if it's straight) will keep workers in.
