I run a KTBH so the hive is horizontal. When I first Hives my package I used a follower board with a hole in it to have an internal feeder but separate from the hive area. I was wondering if you think bees would think of that as a separate area too or just part of the hive that is through a small hole?
If a hive was trapped in that kind of set up would they go through the hole to relieve themselves or do they have to fly outside for a cleansing flight?
I have read if they are trapped inside and not able to do cleansing flights it will end up all over but what if they had a separate area?
