Someone else just asked this question but I am still not sure what to do. I am also new to beekeeping this year. Here are my questions.

#1 Should I put the hive top feeder back on for the entire winter now that they are collecting less pollen?

...or should I put it on for a few weeks and then take it off for the winter?

#2 Should I put popsicle sticks under the feeder to improve ventilation and prevent condensation?

Hi Tulip. I am going to remove my top hive feeder as soon as it warms up here, [mid 40's degrees for a few days here] but I may feed another gal. 2to1 if it warms up before the end of Oct. I think the bees will have a little less "space" to keep warm.
