Opinions please on my newly built TBH
I am brand new to this forum and will be brand new to bee keeping as well. I wanted to ask everyone who would, to please tell me if you feel as though my TBH that I built will be sufficient for the bee's. My main concern is the ventilation and the entrance holes. I have included some pics. My three entrance holes are each, one inch in diameter. The bottom of the hive is closed of by a 3/4 by 5" pine board. there is a tiny crack that runs along both sides of the bottom board. I live in North Carolina (near S.C. line. Please tell me if you think this hive will suffice. I tried to upload some pics from my camera but I haven't figured how to post them on here. Thanks to everyone with opinions !
Oh yeah! Just in case you are wondering.....the hive body is L-44" x W-17.5" x H-12"
