Hi all. An opening of .135 should be big enough to allow Small Hive Beatles to fall through, correct?

It will be totally enclosed. there will be a 3/8" gap from the bottom of the frames to the mesh then about 1/2" to the pull out trays. All covered by at least 3/4" wood floor. I'm just concerned about the bees having to move around over the mesh.
