if ahive is 3 or 4 boxes high it seems, by human logic, that a 3rd or 4th floor entrance would be more productive for the girls working in those areas. (time & motion study was in my background)

I use inner covers with a notches in them. They move up as supers are added, and with the telescoping outer cover pulled forward, the bees always have a top entrance no matter how high the hive gets.

Of course, many of the foragers don't understand the concepts of time & motion and continue to use the entrance at the bottom boards.
