Hello all! I can't begin to express how hot it is here in Texas as many of you already know. Over the past few months I have had my entrance reducers in place on the hives opened up to their largest settings. To increase ventilation and allow for more air flow I was wondering if it is alright to remove them completely or should they remain in place to help the bees guard their homes? Each of the hives is bearding, and one seems to be overun on the front with bees more and more as each day gets hotter. In the morning I plan on inspecting them and thought I would make any changes then. The roofs are all on but I have ventilation screens on under them with wooden bars to raise the roof slightly for more air. Any thoughts on the entrance reducers I would much appreciate.
