I have two newly-purchased, unassembled, 48-inch-long top bar hives ready to put together. I have a carpenter coming Monday to cut a 6- x 40-inch window in one side of each of the two hives.
Here's my question: Does anyone see anything wrong with the following plan?
The walls inside are 11 x 46 1/2 inches. I plan to get glass panes that are 10 x 45 1/2 inches and let the rest on the bottom board and use short screws with small washers on the ends to hold them down (loosely).
