    The patties can be made in advance and kept in the freezer until you need them. Beekeepers usually place four or five small patties (about 2 ounces each) on the top bars and one just inside the front entrance.
    Since you are placing these in summer, not winter, small hive beetles may be a concern at your location. I'd just place one patty at a time.
