We are having a mild Novenber here. If the temp rises much above 55 the bee are a bit active. I fed them through much of October and the hives were heavy enough when I took the feeders off. The weather is is humid with drizzle. After reading some of the recent threads about feeding, I am thinking of putting my top feeders, buckets, back on. I am sure that the bees will feed but will the addition of the liquid into the hives cause problems with humidity that the bees cannot deal with? How about dry granulated sugar? I do not want to deal with candy boards.
