Currently I'm planning on splitting today, and I'm short one inner cover. And I don't want to pay another 10 dollars for shipping to get another one. Plus, one of my cousins, a commercial keeper doesn't even use any inner covers on any of her hives. So, my question is, why even use one? I have heard bunches of things, however they all seem sort of sceptical:
- Providing Ventilation
- Enabling them to move over the top of the frames, instead of going around the bottom
Should I even use one?
