Do most of you remove entrance reducers when the main flow starts? I have a new nuc that has been hived for 10 days. I don't have an entrance reducer available so I keep trying to reduce the opening with folded grass. Within an hour or so the bees pull the grass out and fully open the hive. Even with a fully opened entrance there are maybe 50 bees or so flying around the entrance waiting to get in. We are having some nice dry weather for a change and are in the middle of our big Privet bloom. They are drawing and filling new comb.
Can I keep the entrance open or should I pull out the table saw and cut a new entrance reducer? Maybe install it after the main flow?
