60 Beekeeping in the tropics If you want to be able to close the opening in the ventilation screen, hinge a piece of wood the same size as the notch to the bar. In the open position this little door serves as flight board. For hives where the honey chamber is next to the brood chamber (and not on top of it) make a similar frame to separate the two. In this case it is not necessary to make a flight entrance in the frame, as the honey chamber has its own flight entrance. Place the ventilation screen on top of the hive of the first colony, and then put the hive of the colony which is to be united with it on top of the travelling frame.

Fix a collar of zinc or aluminium to each leg of the stand and grease the underside of these collars once a year with old crankcase oil.
