I have a quick question about my hive if you could help. I have read that the bees like enclosed places, and that one of the biggest risks to a top bar hive is them abandoning it (people speculate because it is because of the big open space of a top bar). So, I've divided mine into thirds, with a 3/4 inch hole going from each section. Should I drill move holes than this for them to traverse the hive, or is this enough?



And yes, I scraped that little bit of paint in the picture off already.

Thanks,
