Hive Doctor Heat Mitigation


Recommended Posts

Hi.

With a hive doctor base the front door is 60mm. They have 6% under floor ventilation unlike a solid floor base. 

How have people found them in hot weather? The new hive is in a sun trap and its amping up to be a hot year so wondering if heat is an issue.

 

Any thoughts welcome.

Which version of HD do you have.  Move the box forward in summer so the whole front is open.  I have never had an over heating problem with any of the models.

I have the original. Single 60mm disk opening. The location is very sunny. I'm going to add second brood box today so that should help if it is too hot.  Thanks for the reply
