I just hived a new package and am feeding with a frame (division) feeder. I'm thinking about staking another deep on top and puting just the frame feeder in it (with no frames). That way, I don't have to disturb the hive as much to refill it. Is this advisable? Thanks for your insights.
I had an empty medium stacked on top of the inner cover (over a deep) all winter. I fed the bees on top of the inner cover. I also had them inside my barn so they would stay a little bit warmer and be able to come up to feed, which they did. As soon as we get reliably warm temps, I will return to a more standard hive configuration. But this worked nicely for my situation.
