Re: Entrance size -getting real hot here
If there's a decent flow I don't worry much about robbing. I just open it up. If I'm doing that for ventilation I worry as much about the hot air leaving the top of the hive as I am about new air coming in through the entrance. Prop the cover, add a top entrance...whatever, just give the hot air a place to leave while being replaced by new air at the bottom. By the way, if you prop the top cover you're still risking robbing so if that's you main concern (and for me, it isn't) think it through. It's one of the reasons I made a bunch of ventilating inner covers.
