This is my first post so please be gentle.

I am setting up two hives with one deep each, an inner cover, a mason jar feeder (like the one sold by Kelley), an empty deep and the outer cover.

The jar feeder sits over the slot in the inner cover, but I'm concerned that the slot is small (three or four inches long by one inch wide).

Should I expand the slot in the inner cover or is it large enough for the bees to easily access the feeder jars?

Thanks for your help!!
