    Oh. That may be why they said in bee club: don't use an inner cover with a quilt box.

    I put my inner cover under the quilt box so I could put winter food in there, but if you think the inner cover itself will trap and drip condensation, then I'll remove the inner cover altogether, and just put feed directly on top of the frames, with a shim to space.

    Doesn't seem much good in putting an inner cover *over* the quilt box, bees can't get to it thru the shavings.

    So to summarize, what's the verdict: inner cover or no inner cover with a quilt box, and if so, where?

    ....and therein lies the crux of my problem. Where do you top feed when using a QB?

    Put a spacer under the quilt box to make room for food. I recessed the screen in my quilt boxes to make room for sugar bricks.

    And then feed directly on the frames?
