Re: lots of dead bees on my screened innercover
Newbie here too but I would think that the concept of the hive NOT being warmed is true. If the bees on top of the screen cannot get to the cluster where it is warm they are done for. If the point of the screened inner cover is to ventilate the hive why isn't the screen at the point of entry? This device appears to me to be a baited trap in the cooler seasons.
