I have done a lot of reading, and have a few questions.
1. Some people are very careful as to the replacement of the brood bars, not disrupting anything. If this is so important, than it should be a bad thing to open the brood nest by inserting empty bars, and conversely it should not really matter if a bar gets put in turned around, or out of order. Is this correct, or have I missed something?
2. I have built 4 Kenya TBHs, and have built a Tanzanian Top Bar Super to go on top. My question is, what is the best place to put the super. Over the 1 ½” bars or over the brood nest 1 ¼” bars.
3. What is the best method of getting the bees to work the TBS, I have taken some of the bars and removed ¼” off of the sides of each leaving the ends solid and the middle open for travel up into the super. Will this work?
