I'm thinking of building an horizontal lang box however I would like to feedback from people who already have them.
The goal: cut down on supplies cost and make it easier to manage the hive.
The box would hold ~20 deep frames and allow supers on half of it.
One normal, 3/4" plywood bottom board, mostly for winter/spring.
Top consists of 2 migratory covers, one having an entrance.
Screen bottom board for the summer/autumn (for formic acid treatments).
No inner cover.
Issues that might arise:
* Overwintering in cold climates: Perhaps exterior r10 insulation would help ?
* Too much ventilation because of the SBB ?
