Between the hive roof and the flow hive tops, I have a mesh screen ( I assume to keep any flies out ) and don’t which way it goes.
I’ve put it so it touches the flow hive, Thinking that they can’t get around the top to the next cavity.
If I have it the other way they’d be able to get around the top of the flow hive to the next section. I didn’t do it this way thinking that they’d build wax between the mesh and the flow hive, making it near impossible to ever remove a flow hive for cleaning/ inspection.
So I suppose the question is.
Should there be a gap at the top of the flow hive for the bees to get around to the next segment?
If so will flip my mesh screen.
