Have used hive yet. I liked all my purchases over the past 2 years. Thanks & good luck!
My new top bar hive came with a single divider board. I decided to get a second one to put at the entrance end, covering the wing nuts and leg hardware. So far, so good. Bees come at the end of April so we shall see if my plan works.
Fine! I need a third separator to drill and use with an internal feder.
This is an elegant, well-made design. The follower is thick and sturdy, and has not warped in 2 months. I don't have the woodworking shop or the cedar to make one here. Would buy again.
