    the only problem with that then is that you ALWAY have to have that super on top...

    why not in the cover somehow...

    I cut mine into my migratory covers. It works very well.

    You can see it in my pics.

    Dan,

    Great idea. I like that better than putting holes in my boxes. Do you use an inner cover with that?

    I tried just one hive with an upper entrance this year. It was a migratory top that I just propped open a bit on one side with a small shim. The bees propalized the opening pretty heavily including the tops of the frames closest to the opening. The bees guarded the opening with no trouble, but didn't actually use it very much. I kept the lower opening clear of grass and weeds, so maybe they just didn't feel the need to have an upper.
