Use Eco Bee Box for Swarms and Transportation – 2012

How easy is the Eco Bee Box to transport?

These boxes were designed by a beekeeper for beekeepers by a general contractor who wanted boxes fast, strong and required little to no upkeep.  One of the features/equipment added to the bee box was a locking clip.  The locking clip can be used to hold the bottom board to the lower brood box, can hold brood boxes together (propolis will hold but does break), and can hold honey supers to the inner cover or a flush mount top cover.
When capturing swarms this locking clip serves a wonderful purpose of holding the entire box securely held together.
