Re: acceptable temps for in-hive feeding? Best logistics?
Mitch, I am still feeding my nucs using mason jars over a hole in the inner cover and a 5 frame super on top. I have styrofoam hivetop feeders on all the full-sized hives which will stay there all winter long. They serve as feeders on warm winter days and insulation on the cold days. This setup brought me through last winter with zero losses.
Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.
