Queen excludesr are a selective barrier inside the beehive that allows worker bees but not the larger queens and drones to traverse the barrier. The purpose of the queen excluder is to limit the queen's access to the honey supers. If the queen lays eggs in the honey supers and a brood develops it is difficult to harvest a clean honey product and it makes management more difficult.
