Inclined Bottom-boards Do Not Throw Out All The Worms

Inclined bottom-boards form the basis of one or two patents, said to be

good to roll out the worms. I can imagine a pea rolling off such a

board; but a worm is not often found in a rolling condition. Most of us

know, that when a worm drops from the combs, it is like the spider,

with a thread attached above. The only way that I can imagine one to be

thrown out by these boards, is to have it dead when it strikes it, or

so cold that it cannot spin a thread, and wind to shake the board, till

it rolls off. The objections to these boards are coupled with the

suspended hive, with which they are usually connected.
