Re: Inner cover placement with a top feeder?
I have just had a experience with this same thing your facing. I did not use a inner cover with the Mann Lake top feeder, and my new cover starting molding (starting) i took the feeder off for right now. But when i put it back on im going to put screen over my inner cover vent. I origionally didnt want bees to come in from my top cover vent only to drown in the syrup. I say put it back on and just make sure that dado that i made has a little screen over it just to make sure it is venting BUT not letting bees enter. Or i could glue come match sticks in under my cover to lift it just a tad for ventilation. Just my thoughts. I just knew someone else would have this problem as well.
