Re: Queen excluders
There are lots of people who probably run their hives that way all the time, as an upper entrance in addition to a lower entrance is advocated to increase ventilation AND provide easier access to the supers. Maybe someone out there has experimented with all these different configurations to see which one produced the most honey, I'm thinking not likely. I speculate that testing that third configuration that you are talking about would not result in much change in honey production over the other ways.
