Re: Techniques for Removing Top Box for Harvest?
Something to consider, and I've never tried it myself or gotten a response on if it works, but my thinking is if one were to align boxes 90 degrees to one another, the ladder comb might be reduced as there would be less surface area for the bees to attach it to. One concern might be they would just build 90 degrees to the comb guides to keep combs in vertical alignment, but one could offset this by transferring comb to empties to give them a guide.
Again, just a theory, but maybe one worth considering at some point as an experiment. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone that has tried it.
Treatment free. Still learning and hope to never stop.
