    Default Re: Entrance Reducer?

    Fixentobee, Here is the dimensions for you in the form of a pic, your hive may vary somewhat from mine so for the 2 7/8" measurement you will have to measure the depth of your entrance / landing and add 3/4" so the reducer wedge will slip under the brood box. The 5 1/2" length will be the same. I made mine from some scrap pieces of 3/4" shelving lumber, they are easy to make, I hope this helps..... Southeast Ohio Zone 6A

    I use wooden paint stir sticks to reduce the hive entrances. Tack them in place leaving the gap on one end. I reduce my weak hive entrances during the Summer dearth, the others I leave open until the first frost.
    Experience isn't always the best way to learn...You usually get the lesson first...And the instruction afterwards...
