    Default question about division board feeder and package bees

    now that my package bees from April have drawn out two deep brood boxes i have been feeding them using the "division board feeders" from mann lake. they take up i think 2 frame spaces. is it recommended to remove the feeder now and replace it with frames now?

    Some folks leave the feeder in the top box year round so that it always available when needed. Others (including me) take them out and replace them with frames. (I'll put the undrawn frames at positions 3 and 7 so long as I'm not messing up brood) I do my fall feeding not with division board feeders but with 1 gal. paint cans inverted on top of the frames of the upper box.
