entrance reducer and robber screen
« on: March 12, 2007, 07:29:14 PM »
Hi,
I was wondering.
With a new package would you ever use both entrance reducer and robber screen? Or is one or the other good enough.

Cheers,
Patrick

Sure, if there are strong hives around.

A robber screen reduces the entrance among other things.
