BEE HIVES & ENTRANCES
HONEY BEE PREFERENCES AND HIVE CONFIGURATIONS
Having identified the benefits my hives are now all using solid floors and no standard or traditional entrance.
One of my development hives similar to those pictured on this page won a Silver Medal at the National Honey Show in October 2019.
Any floor or base can be used, with my preference being a simple flat board. I use a screened/or mesh floor on colonies I would like to evaluate for varroa.
