    Default Entrance question

    I started my 2 hives on April 17th. I noticed that there are 20 to 25 bees at the entrance at a time on nice days, and maybe 15 to 20 on the other hive (maybe more). When should I make the entrance bigger for the bees.

    The girls should have had time to hatch alot of brood by now. If you are useing the smallest hole move it to the next size. Basically base it on how many bees are at the entrance trying to get in. If they are clumping up that is a real good sign make it bigger.
