Entrance reduction

 Entrance Reduction-The Movie

Anna installed these entrance reducers in all three hives today. Without this you run the risk of a mouse making its way into your hive and making a sweet feast of all that delicious honey.

bees/ mice

Mark it has been said if you can get a dime thickiness, then there is room for mice to fit. however I like the reduction, i do not think you will have to worry for mice invasion as the bees would show him a thing or two and send him back to Disney Land. if you worry about mice I would use small fencing/ like rat wire. hope to see honey in the summer. yea yea

You're probably right that mice could get in --- various spots on the internet say that entrance reducers aren't 100% effective. We'll just hope the mice think it's too scary in there.
