side entrance or end entrance?
I'm a newbie with my first hive and it's a TTBH. I put three 1/2 inch holes(instead of one larger one) on the front of my hive towards the side and a fellow beek was telling me that I should put the entrance on the side of the hive in the middle, so the bees can fan with the entrance in-line with the comb instead of across the comb. The beek told be that the bees won't be able to fan properly with the holes on the end of the hive. He also said that it is more natural for the bees to start in the middle and work outwards. What's everyone's thoughts on the subject?
