I am just starting out. (hives are between 4 weeks and 2 weeks old)
For two new hives, I have the Mann Lake FD110 http://www.mannlakeltd.com/mm5/merch...productInfo/2/ hive top feeder on two hives.
I have not used my inner cover and wonder if I should. All hives put a little bit of comb on the bottom of the feeder, but on one of the hives, they seem to really love it.
Each week that I check the feed level and the laying status (all three hives are doing well with drawing and laying), I scrape it off. However, this is also the 3# package hive and it really needs to not waste its energy.
Should I use an innder cover below the feeder or just keep on doing what I am doing?
Thanks all. I have learned a lot from these forums and thank you everything.
