Thanks for looking over my post.
We are expected to have close to record temperatures where I live, which is in east San Diego County. As of today, 104F-Sat / 105F-Sun and it's suppose to be a "dry" heat.
I am familiar with most the the tricks to help keep a hive cool, but I wanted to run another idea that I have, and see if it's a good idea, or useless for the most part. (I'm really only curious about the box idea)
My plan is to simply add empty, frame-less Mediums to the tops for two days to allow for more room to help keep things a bit cooler. I'm not sure if two days is enough time to create a comb mess, but I'm fine with that if it helps.
