As a moisture absorbant placed above the inner cover and inside an empty super, dry sugar has performed exceptionally well for my bees.  Its a win-win.

Of course I place considerably more than just a 'handful'-its more like between 5 & 10 lbs, so its a few inches deep, and also covered w/ 2" rigid insulation. 

By Spring the sugar is hard as a rock (from the moisture absorbed throughout the winter) and my less well-off bees chow on it until the first flow or it becomes warm enough to feed syrup.

This week I will be covering my hives w/ 1" rigid insulation for the first time after much convincing discussion and debate from this site  Wink

No one here use that kind of sugar tricks.  

We use very simple methods.

When you have good advices, why don't you teach Alaska's beeks to keep their colonies alive.

 there are areas in the USA that experience cold beyond the climate condition of your small village  cool
you dont have the market cornered on this subject--every year time in time out -you boost about your sorry conditions which you keep bees-you arnt even smart enough to take credit for the real difficulty your region adheres to-
cold is in many many places-your problem is very simple why dont you ever speak about whats really going on-
why is it hard to keep bees in finland -is it the cold--no its the extra month that your bees are confined--thats right
 when you going to change the script- cheesy  Kiss RDY-B

OK, I looked up Clayton, CA.  I didn’t realize rdy-b was in the San Francisco area.  It looks like rdy-b is inland enough to get kind of warm in the summer, but nowhere near to the hottest place in the USA.  Finski, you need to check out death valley, CA the next time you’re in America.  It has the highest recorded temperature in the world!  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_Valley  It might melt our poly hives  laugh

Interestingly, it looks like the guy who founded rdy’s town was born in BUGSWORTH, in the UK!
