    Default Baggie Feeder Top Bar Hive

    Hi All! I am on day 11 after installing 2 packages into new TBHs. The hives seem to be building nicely and are taking a quart of syrup every 2 to 3 days. I want to be able to feed them for longer periods of time mostly because of a rainy spring. I was thinking about a baggie feeder on top of the top bars. I cut out a section of a top bar to give them access and I was going to lay it on top of the bars on a piece of plywood. I thought I could use this in the winter for dry sugar also. Any thoughts...pros and cons...

    That has worked for me(bee candy, pollen patties, etc.) and did not cut any openings, the bees got there on their own.
