I am on the verge of receiving my first order of bees in a week and due to a mix up with Brushy Mnt.
I'm waiting on the top feeder I ordered. I'm left with the entrance feeder that I received with my 8 frame English garden kit I ordered,which I really have no intention of using. If I don't receive the top feeder in time what would you recommend I do to feed my new hive? I know Michael suggests using a bottom feeder but I don't think that's a option at this point. Thanks
A little back story:
This obviously is my first attempt at bee keeping. I ordered my hive/equipment before I read Michael Bush's book. I have all 8 frame mediums though,I'm using a IPM bottom board, and I'm going foundationless. Also I know it's a little late in the spring but had to convince the girlfriend it was a safe hobby to have on her property..lol
