Hello all, just wondering if anyone has used the Hive Doctor Base.
What do you think of it? Just looking at purchasing all my set up and was wondering if this base is worth using, it certainly looks good to me.
Regards
Jason

Never heard of, or seen, the thing until now.  Looks like a pretty cool bottom board and don’t see anything really wrong with it.  It looks like this is a New Zealand invention?  My only complaint would be the apparent inability to completely shut off the bottom screen in the winter.  We have cold winters where I am.  I don’t believe in a home with a open floor in the middle of winter.  Other beeks will of course disagree.  In more mild climates, I wouldn’t worry about it.

I have bought one to try it out, but that wont be until the end of August early September. It does come with one tray which slides underneath but you can purchase additional trays and by using three you practically shut off the bottom screen. Also there is no landing board but in response to this they have now made one from corflute which fits into the front but you would need to ask for it at the time of purchase.
