Designed to be versatile, sturdy, and easy to use, this painted bottom board stands alone. It needs no other bottom boards or add-ons to function. A 1/8″ mesh screen covers the entire floor allowing for greatest ventilation and mite drop possible. 3/4″ strips around three sides provide the entrance. A white vinyl-coated masonite tray slips in the back on a track below the screen, to monitor mite drop. By using 1 3/8″ stock for two interlocking frames we have achieved a very strong, durable construction. Since it is not necessary to have a mite tray for every bottom board, they must be ordered separately.
