Kathy or others--I have all topbar hives and so could not put sugar on top. Would there be any reason I should not dump some in the bottom of my solid-bottom hives? Thanks :)
One more thing--I'm confused when people talk about, for example, "2 deeps to overwinter." If a person's broodnest fills 2 deeps, including some backfilled brood area, are those the 2 deeps referred to. Or, are folks talking about storage area above and beyond the brood area?
