    Default Hive entrance size

    I have bought Warre hives from beethinking before. The entrances used to be 1/4"x4". I just ordered a new one and the entrance is 1/2"x4.5". Is this an issue?

    No, bees regulate the temperature. Bees cluster loose or tight onto the frames to keep brood warm. Bees will beard when it's too hot in the hive.

    The only issue would be 1/2 allows mice entry in the winter but that can be remedied with a mouse guard.
