Re: Honeyless in Seattle
In most top bar hives, the bees do not have access to the top side of the bars. Adjacent bars touch each other for the full width of the bar and block bee access to the top. This means that Mtn Camp style feeding of sugar is not practical.
I don't have experience feeding dry sugar inside a TBH, but you could try intentionally hardening sugar with a mist of water into a "block" of sorts, and then putting that block inside the hive on the floor of the hive. Move back the follower board to make room for the block.
