The link below has some information that I've never heard about before, some of it pertaining to increase honey production - and an aid to help control mites both at very low expense - and - if you want to experiment! It details placing two magnets on your hive and a bare copper wire at the entrance. SO, experiment away, especially if you have multiple hives where you can keep some as normal and others with the experiments to compare honey production. Or course there are many factors that relate to how little or how much honey is produced. These are some interesting concepts though and I may just have to try them out on my old (vertical, langstroth) hive. IF these work for YOUR hives, come back and let people know.
