Screened bottom boards
Hope every one`s having a good spring. Personally, I`m doing pretty good. I went into winter with 6 hives and they are all doing well.
Now to my question. I`m thinking of converting all my BBs to SBBs. I`ve read a lot of good stuff about SBB. I will basically cut out a square in the floor and replace it with a #8 screen ( leaving about 2 inches of wood all around for support).
Before I do this I was wondering if anyone ever had a bad experience with SSBs? I`ve read a lot of pros... are there any cons? Is there any time/place/circumstance SSB should not be used? Don`t they chill the hive ?
Thanks to all that reply.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss you`ll be among the stars!
