Experience feeding bees dry sugar with your Apimaye hive
I'm using two Apimaye hives this year for the first time. I've used Langstroth hives with top feeders and dry sugar successfully for several years. Wondering if it could work with the Apimaye. I've fed the bees sugar water up to this point. Has anyone used dry sugar to feed in the wintertime? How did you do it? I assume the cap to the feeder would be left on to preserve heat. If so, were the bees able to get to the dry sugar easily? If not, was heat loss a problem?
