Re: Question on ventilation holes drilled in deep boxes?
If I were you I would think about it before I decided to drill 3/4" holes in my brood boxes. There are plenty of other ways to vent off excess moisture in the winter if thats what your worried about. Those holes are always a pain when you have to move your hives, and they make great entrances for robber bees that will clean out a weaker hive in a hurry. If it were such a great idea don't you think that manufacturers would drill the holes in the boxes for you.
