    I bought my top bar hive from The Garden Hive. It included three spacers, each one a different thickness. Why is this? Where do I place them? All the spacers I've seen and read about are uniform in size, so this is confusing to me.

    Hello shane and welcome to the forum :wave:

    I can not help you out with top bar hives since I have never kept any....sorry!

    There are several on here that do keep them though and will be on later. You might try calling the Garden Hive place and asking them, just a thought.

    Thanks, yes I've emailed the company. And I'm hoping I'll meet some other top bar hivers on this site. :)
