Via what?

Just normal air movement from inside the hive.

I don't understand that. I have no condensation problems either.

I have warm hives and consumption of winterfood is from Semptember to end of April  on average 20 kg sugar.

No starvation problems.
Nosema makes nuisance every winter. That I compensate with 20% extra hives.


I learned moisture lesson when I lost 6 hives 40 years ago. None of these had upper entrance.

Just now we have here  -10C to -20C frost and sometimes a bad wind.

I dunno...I'm just telling you what I have going on.  Our winters are not nearly as bad as yours so maybe that is the difference maker.  smiley

That is quite true.

However the main point is that  25 kg food stores generate 10 litre water via respiration, and that must be ventilated off  - but during long time.
