Re: Drilling holes in boxes...
My boxes have holes, some with little landing boards/pieces of wood nailed under the hole (not all have this). They are only on the front of the boxes, no particular location. They get plugged with corks or sticks or tape if needed. Unlimited broodnest. I have no complaints about having them, they are used by the bees all the time so they seem to like them. No skunk problems. Also use 9 frames in 10 frame hive in every box. Deb
I did read something about this on Rusty Burlews site a few years ago, I donít know if she still uses them. Deb
