    Default Leaking top bar feeder

    I just installed my first 2 warre hives two days ago. I am currently using top bar feeders. I have noticed that one of the feeders is leaking despite the bees being very active inside. I was thinking about removing the feeder to fix it but am worried to disterb the hive before the queen is accepted. Should I remove the feeder and fix it or should I wait longer until the queen is definitely accepted? Also will it have any negative effects being that it is leaking down into the wall of the hive.

    My opinion is that you should fix it. The more sugar that leaks the more danger of robbing, ants, ect, not to mention the mess.
