My first trapout will be this weekend.
Without using any framing, I can place the hive box above where the bees are entering the house (chimney/roof). But the cone exit would not be able to be right at the entrance of the hive box, it would be below it by 3-4 inches.
Is this an issue? Or do I need to frame it such that the cone exit is at the entrance of the hive box?
