French term or phrase: barquettes en forme de palissade
Calling all polyglot north African apiculturists...
Can anyone think of a good way of phrasing "barquettes en forme de palissade"? Many thanks in advance for any suggestions...

English translation:what are these barquettes?
Explanation:
Are they polystyrene meat trays "valorisé" as insulating hive walls? They could be simply placed on end, side by side, forming a palissade held in place/together with mud, so a literal translation could work. Or "like a hit-and-miss fence".

Or are they the special Apiguard trays, also "valorisé" in a second life?

Apiguard® is a specially designed and patented slow release gel containing thymol. Apiguard gel, presented in 50gm ready to use aluminium TRAYS, regulates the liberation of thymol within the honeybee colony and provides a much more efficient control of hive pests than was possible before.
Apiguard® is extremely easy to use. It is simply a matter of placing the opened TRAY face upwards in the TOP OF BROOD FRAMES, preferably centred over the colony. After 10 days examine the tray and if depleted replace with a second tray. If there is product left in the TRAY after 10 days leave until day 14 and then replace. Leave a second tray in position for a further 2-4 weeks and treatment has been completed (duration of treatment therefore lasts 4-6 weeks).
