Can I place hives directly on a pallet? With just a SBB?? If I place my hives this way....... Is a slatted rack any advantage? Or does the slats of the pallet help with drafts?

Personally in North Dakota, I'd close the bottom of the SBB for the winter. It's pretty darn cold there. In the summer it will work fine open. I don't think you'd notice much difference with a slatted rack in addition to the SBB, but I do like them. A little cluster space and less drafty ventilation are nice, but I don't think the difference is very significant.
