    Default Top bar entrance question

    Hello, I have only one top bar hive I started in late May. They have drawn out about 14 bars of comb and I do see capped honey. My question is I only have two 3/4 inch holes for an entrance. Should I add more holes for them? My hive is 4 ft long with 15 inch bars, it just seems like its crowded at the entrance and like they have slowed down building comb. Thanks for any help.

    Probably wouldn't hurt to be honest.
    They will slow down during a drought. I'm thinking you have it as well?
