“Constructive beekeeping” by Ed Clarke written in 1918? can be found at:

This book talks about how ventilation, insulation, humidity, and temperature are interrelated inside the hive. Easy to read explanations of the thermodynamics on how the hive works as a condenser. You don't need to be an engineer to understand this book.

Planning to coat the inside of new wooden ware this year with propolis to help prep the hive for effective evaporation and give it that "new hive smell". Hope it gives the swarm traps a leg up also.
