I just put on a second deep on my packaged bee's and i was curious where is it best to put a frame feeder? (top or bottom)

Thanks a lot

If you are going to use a frame feeder it is much easier to place it in the top hive because you won't be disturbing the bees as much.All you have to do is remove the telescoping cover and your inner cover to access it. When I use frame feeders I place some styrofoam packing(peanuts) in the feeder to help cut down on the bees drowning. Good luck.
