I have a brushy mtn hive top feeder that I never used because I heard the bees drowned to easy. However, I have a hive that is a little light that I would like to give some emergency dry sugar to just in case the ladies run out of food this winter. Do you think I could put the sugar directly in the hive top feeder? Has anyone ever tried this? Should I use the newspaper method on top of the frames surrounded by a shallow instead? Thanks in advance. Also, I have an 8 frame deep and 8 frame medium that they are wintering in if that makes any difference.
