Hi all. An opening of .135 should be big enough to allow Small Hive Beatles to fall through, correct?
I built one several years ago, but only used it for the second time this year. I did put a single piece mesh floor, and beneath that is a hinged solid bottom to use during the winter. I caught a rather nasty feral swarm in late May of '22, and hived them up in this as I was out of equipment! They have been fantastically productive bees, but they are very defensive.I'm planning on building a Long Lang and I was wondering if the bees would not like the floor being all mesh. What are your thoughts?
