    I think you're inevitably going to get some but not pushing the tray all the way in, leaving about 1/8-inch gap, seems to help a little.

    Tilt your hive forward a bit, maybe a quarter to half inch out of level that will help water flow away. But make sure side to side is level especially if you are using foundationless frames.
