I plan to make some plywood innercovers. I do not intend to create a grooved rim to place 1/4" plywood in but would like to use solid plywood. Will 1/2" plywood be sufficiently strong or should I use 3/4"?

Michael, I have to disagree, 1/42" is much to thin, and really hard to find. (or maybe it was a typo, and should have said 1/2".

Question on using only a top entrance: do you always have an open bottom (i.e screened or slatted) with it? Also do you think it matters that water blows in when in rains?
Thanks

Yes it was a typo. It was supposed to be 1/2"

Half of mine do and half are solid bottoms converted to feeders.

> Also do you think it matters that water blows in when in rains?

No. It does not appear to make any difference.

Michael,
I like the look of your top entrances. I have two questions. How do you feed your bees if the need arises? Also what type of bottom board are you using in this setup?

Thanks,
Joe
