I’m new to beekeeping and have been lurking around here for a while. I’m enjoying the conversations. I searched for this question and didn’t find it. If someone has an existing link please share.
Yesterday I went to inspect my hive, I tried to remove the top brood box but instead both the top and bottom brood boxes moved several inches sideways, leaving an opening. I managed to move it back so that the is hanging 1 - 2 inches off the back of the bottom board, essentially creating two entrances. I also sustained several stings when I did this, the ladies were very upset by me moving their home, obviously. I stopped trying to fix the problem I created and retreated in the house until they calmed down.
Should I be concerned by there being two entrances, one in front and one in the back? The girls are protecting both entrances. It’s been in the high 80s, low 90s here, if that helps.
Thank you all for your help in advance.
