It’s important to know exactly where your sensors are inside your colony. If you just drill a hole in the back and stick a sensor in you don’t know where the sensor is, and even then with what i have done here, you don’t know if the bees have shifted the brood over a little bit which could affect your numbers. You would have to open the colony and occasionally check the position.
