I have one hive now and would like to split it out next spring. I know I would like to have at least two hives, and maybe three. I build a frame for the hives to sit on, and am sure that it will accomidate two, but I am not sure about a third.
If I only put two hives on the frame, the entrances will be a little over three feet apart. If I do three hives, the hives themselves will be only 10 inches apart, with entrance openings about 1 ft. apart. Is this sufficient for three hives, or will drift and robbing be of concern?
