I've put it in a feeder that's sloping towards where they normally feed. At this time of the year, they should take it very quickly as soon as it's warm enough for them to get out and about. Make sure that only the hive that you're feeding it to can get it, otherwise you've got a good chance for robbing.
By strong I mean its very dark with a odor of urine. I like dark honey and this tastes great as long as your not breathing as you eat it. It was some early stuff from last year. I was running out so pulled some supers to restock the shelves. It was right after Autumn Olive so I believe it came from these.
