    When I've given my bees entrances that were too large, they wouldn't shrink them. How will they shrink their entrances for winter or robbing? I've tried putting propolis in the hive, but it didn't work.

    So tonight I got to hear Marla Spivak speak and she talked about some experiments they did with either painting propolis on the inside of hives or lining the hive boxes with propolis traps to coax bees into lining the hive boxes with the resin. Has anyone tried other methods of roughing up the...

    My top bar hive has three one-inch holes in the front (at the top). I was planning to plug two of them with corks when it got a bit colder, but today I noticed that the bees are propolising up two of this. They have preferred the one on the left all year, and the middle one is now 50% covered...
