Re: Still trying to find the right bee space
I would not sweat it (mine have about 3/4, to accomidate a full sized top entrance, and there is very little problem with but comb). If you only have a couple of hives or less, you would just have to scrape a little more wax. However if you want it just so, yes cut it so that there is 3/8 space from the top of your frames to the bottom of the inner cover.
