Re: top entrances
Simple top entrance is to removeall or part of front top 3/8 rim of inner cover for an entrance. Obviously, telescoping cover should not be blocking this entrance and may need to shimmed upwards so as to not block.
Add four 1 1/4 holes in inner cover towards the four corners.
Bees enter and crawl over inner cover and enter the hive via the four holes and hand hole in the center. Bees do not build any comb above the inner cover.
If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got!
