Doug,I am thinking about using a top entrance and was wanting to know if I would still use an inner cover. Also what kind of top feeder would I need to use. Thanks, Doug
No, as I screen the escape hole in the inner cover, so no bees above innercover. You could use as you described, many do just that. you can even just offset your supers from the one above or below to create a top or mid entrance.TreeWinder, have you ever had the bees build comb in the 3" section?
What if you just build a 3/8" high frame and used it beneath a super then with your inner cover and telescoping lid? Would the bees build comb in that 3/8" section between frames?
