OK, I am in NY and it is 40 and sunny here today so I went out to try the mountain camp feeding method, and when I popped off the outer and inner covers the bees were all over the top of 3/4 of the frames, which I thought is good. The problem I had was I had no room to put the newspaper and sugar down without crushing the girls! which of course I didn't want to do. I did not have a smoker with me, and I didn't think it was a good idea to smoke them this time of year anyway. Here is what I did and I just wanted to see if everyone thinks this will work. I put the inner cover back on upside down, I then put the sugar all around the oblong hole in the top of the cover, then put an empty medium super and the outer cover. Do you think this will work? Will the girls be able to access the sugar? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
