Re: Top Entrances and Robbing?
I always get too carried away with new ideas so maybe I will also try JC’s top entry on a side by side test of a couple of hives. Do you use window screen for your robber screen (cheaper and easier to work than #8 hardware cloth). The last experiment I tried with the top entry I just had a hundred bees guarding it for the month and nobody seemed to used it. Maybe if I start them in spring between the deeps and supers as a middle entry?
