I am planning on going to a top entrance, from a standard bottom entrance/SBB. Can I simply close up the old bottom entrance with a piece of wood, and get the bees to go out the top, or does the bottom board require any modification?

I'm also thinking with future hives in mind, and how does one build bottom boards (screened) with top entrances in mind?

Thank you. The 'bee space' between the bottom of the frame/SBB doesn't get filled with comb since it'll no longer be a trafficked pathway? That's pleasantly simple...
