I know Rob (and others too probably) swear by these covers. Beautiful day, beautiful life. CindiActually, I don't use these covers. I prefer no upper entrance in the summer, and don't like the extra space left above the frames as they tend to burr comb in the area. I prefer a flat inner cover that keeps the bee space above the frames correct and a ventilation box on top of that.
My winter setup is similar though.
Rob, right, one little misunderstanding. I am so happy when one makes a mistake and it is corrected, seems weird, but I truly appreciate it. See what this has brought now though, old Mrs. Curiosity, that's me.....that is my other name, just like my Husband is also known as "Someone". Someone around here is always blamed for stuff, and he has finally accepted that usually when Someone is blamed or given the blazes for, it is that persona that is his alter ego (hee, hee), ooops, oh brother, there I go again, flyin' off topic.
Rob, in all seriousness, now about the ventilation box (I knew I had read you use them, in some way) above the inner cover.
Why don't you use an inner cover with the notch at the front? Guarding issues?
With the ventilation box above the inner cover, there must be a hole in the centre of the inner cover for hot air to escape into the ventilation box?
This is probably on your site, so I am showing that lazy side of me, I do have that skill of laziness, hee hee, ;) :) for some things.
Now I think this has brought yet another question to the forefront.
I see many inner covers that have an oblong hole in the centre of it. With my inner covers they have a round hole, what is the difference? Can't wrap my head around that different design. Do any of my forum friends know this answer?
Rob, tell me, I know the song about the Hokey Pokey and love that song and dance, but......what is the Hokey Pokey anyways????
Have a beautiful and wonderful day, Cindi
John, by the way, I love how you sign off on your posts, "ya'lls friend, John" -- that imparts something that makes me smile, no clue why, but it is a very friendly sign off.
