Re: How to feed a Top Bar Hive
If the simple way was also the best, everyone would be doing it. There is a reason why people are using other "harder" methods.
Putting sugar on the floor then wetting it can potentially cause a number of problems, one of them being robbing as the bees cannot defend this sugar. Robbing can ultimately be fatal to the hive. Might work but it's a gamble, likely many beekeepers have done this at some time.
Best to use one of the other suggestions in the thread.
44 years, been commercial, outfits up to 4000 hives, now 120 hives and 200 nucs as a hobby, selling bees. T (mostly).
