I fed my nucs dry sugar this past winter by placing several sheets of newspaper over the top bars and pouring sugar on top of the paper. The bees got fed but it turned into quite a mess. The bees chewed through the newspaper and sugar spilled into the bottom of the nuc box. This method also makes it very difficult to lift a frame if need be to check on the bees without getting sugar everywhere. I would like to just fill a division board feeder with dry sugar and avoid the mess. Will that work? Will it put the bees too far from the sugar? Would like to heard from anyone who actually fed this way.
