Re: upper vents in winter for condensation/ventilation: yes or no?
Fort Worth Texas is not usually that type of climate. It typically starts raining in October, and stops in February. last year was atypical. I pulled my top screened vent to prevent brood chilling for the last couple of nights. Will be painting it, adding a bit of caulk along the screen to better protect against moths getting into the hive itself. I had not planned on leaving it on this winter, or I was going to put some corks in the drilled openings and pop in some styrofoam insulation. But condensation?
