My entrances are a slot 9mm tall so I never have to worry about mice, but I do eventually reduce the slot length down in Nov or December as the cold really sets in.  While it might not be much of a problem in wood hives, if the entrance is reduced too early in an insulated (foam) hive, the hives just get a little too warm and I often get a lot of bees hanging around outside the hive on/under the landing board.  Populations are high this time of year.  All is good until we get a cold rain and it kills those bees hanging around outside the hive.  I havenít reduced anything yet and weíve had a couple of killing frosts up here.  

The OP is probably fine keeping the entrance reduced, but just monitor that you donít have a bunch of bees hanging around outside the box when a real cold wave pushes down your way.  Bees just arenít as smart as you might expect when it comes to being outside in the cold rain.

If I recall, H Ross Perot was ahead in the polls until he tapped that crazy old guy for a VP.  I know, the guy was a war hero or something, but still he came across as one loony tune.  When even Quayle looks good compared to your pick, you know youíre in trouble!!!  To Perotís credit, pretty much everything he predicted came to pass. Sad

As for the gridlock policy of the GOP, maybe that would be ok if we werenít essentially bankrupt!!!  Imagine Bohner and the GOP on the Titanic.  Gee we hit an iceburg, but letís not do anything.

I'm going to leave it small. It is slowing them down a bit and maybe even causing drifting, but other than that, no harm. It is still getting chilly at night and my real consern is the mice, but if it helps robbing not get started, then that's probably worse than the mice.

I never had to have them open more than 4" x 3/4". I guess I haven't had a real strong hive yet.

We have lots of Boronia, bottlebrush, grevillias, isopogon, some teatree and turpinitnes out at present. Of course the gardens are full of flowers as well.

GSF, i would agree with that if it included executive orders and alphabet agencies.  the job of congress is primarily to legislate.  all legislation impacts freedom.
they are also to have oversight, and here they have badly failed.  this is where they need to decide whether or not they will do their job and either control, or defund what is out of control.

You could get the five packages and let them build up strong. Then make your best hive queenless by taking her out and put her in a nuc and the bees will make queen cells. on the 14th day take two frame nucs out of the packages and put the queen cells in. Keep the package queens in a small nuc also for a backup queen.
