getting ready to make more inner covers and noticed my old ones have a 1/2'' of bee space between the cover and top of the frames , if I go for a top entrance 3/8'' hi and frames are 1/8'' down inside box you end up with a 1/2'' space , hasn't been a problem I dont get burr comb on top of the frames , any thoughts , maybe my entrance doesnt need to be 3/8'' hi

I always wondered about flat covers and didn't think it would give bee's enough room to walk around on top of the frames , the frames on box's i make and mann lake box's are recessed only about 1/8'' or maybe a little more but it doesn't seem like enough room for bee's to walk around on top

Yes the bee space at the top between the inner cover and the top of the frames a flat cover on mann lake box's and mine would only give the bee's a little over 1/8 '' space which doesnt seem like enough room .
