>do you think top entrances work better than bottom entrances ?
In several ways yes:http://www.bushfarms.com/beeslazy.htm#topentrance
> How does that effect the bees keeping the hive clean and would that also hinder inspection.
I don't see any difference. The house bees haul the dead out the door wherever that may be, when there are enough bees to do so. They don't when there are not enough bees to do so.
> Will you give us a picture of one of your hives.
There is a web site full of pictures of my hives:www.bushfarms.com
Here are pictures of top entrances and how I make them:http://www.bushfarms.com/beestopentrance.htm
