I know this topic has been discussed multiple times, as I’ve searched the forum for the past few days, but I can’t seem to find the right answer. I received my bees Saturday. I wish I had attempted to build and install an entrance reducer before they arrived, but I was planning on just using grass, as some people have suggested. But my bees have pushed out the grass 4 times now. So yesterday I decided to try a homemade wooden reducer. One of the threads I read mentioned that 3 comb guides that come with the kit glued together will fit the entrance. I’ve tried that, and it seems like it almost fits, but it keeps popping out. Now my girls are getting angry at me, and I hate to keep disturbing them. Can anyone provide me with the actual dimensions? I’ve emailed the company but as yet haven’t heard back. Thank you all so much.
