what is the best type of lid, I copied a lid from a local comercial beekeeper, a migratory lid with a 3/4 lip all the way around, with a overhang front and back, when the lid is on, and pushed all the way forward there is a top opening pushed back closed, but with the 3/4 space the bees load the top with bur comb, what a mess, when I had a couple hives, not such a big deal, but as I grow the time to clean the mess is getting excessive,
is it better to have the space? and if so why? or have the migratory lid fit flush with the top of the box? and avoid the mess.
