    Default Inner cover ventilation notch

    Searched high and low. How wide is the vent notch? Thanks

    I will take a shot at it. Mine are about an inch wide x 3/8" tall. I have some that are a little wider.

    It can if you slide the top cover forward so the bees can get to it under the cover.

    All the ones I have seen are 3/8" tall and anywhere from 3/4" to 1" wide.

    Yes. I let them use it as an entrance. I will screen it over if I feel there is some robbing going on. And like said above you can open and close it with a telescoping cover.

    After watching three hives get ravaged by the 1000 year flood last October, every hive I have has a top entrance. They were not my hives, but a top entrance would have probably saved them.
