I am just learning and since I live in Wyoming, wintering is a concern. As a novice, gauging the amount of honey the bees will need for winter in my planned TBH will be a learning process. I want to be prepared for winter feeding needs and am curious about a candy board. Since the top bars form a sort of "inner cover" but without any sort of access hole, can a candy board be used with a TBH and if so, what sorts of modifications would one need to make. We often see temps in the -20 to -30 range, sometimes for days at a time and I'd also like them to be able to stay clustered as well as possible.
Anyone have any advice? Should I just feed dry sugar on newspaper on the top bars? We are REALLY dry here so it doesn't seem like excess moisture will be a big issue?
