I am useing an inverted quart jar for feeding the bees. I think with the day and night  temperatures changing thirty to fourty degrees that it causes even the glass jars to breath. I have found sugar water dripping from the open bottom several times these past few weeks. Luckily the bees are not building comb right under the jar (yet).

Try drilling/cutting a hole in a 2"x6"block of wood and cut some grooves in the sides for the bees to get into the sugar water and you don't have to have it right over the hole to leak on them.
