HI. Three questions, the 1st one the oddest, 1) Re Hive Stand for Warre Hive: My son is grown but we still have an elaborate "Little Tikes playground" complete with 3 "standing areas" and 6 foot slide, which the hornets loved last summer. It's heavy & the highest platform is 5" high & protected from wind on two sides, but easily accessible to us (-you can see an on-line picture under "Little Tikes Playground", now selling for $799). It's plastic & 14years old & gets warm in summer but only plastic-cold in winter. Depending on the "standing area" hive could have 2 side plastic wall protection or 3.5 side air flow. It's discouraging to bears & skunks but probably little deterrent to ants. Would this be a very very silly or an absolutely ideal hive stand? 2) Are cedar shavings alone, sawdust shavings, or a mix of both best for twin goals of insulation + pest deterrence in insulating blanket? 3) If one does want to partially feed new bees with honey, where does one optimally place that honey to ease access/minimize robbing in/around Warre hive?
