I just picked up two nucs yesterday and they are in my two ten frame hives.  I was advised to feed sugar water for the first week.  I picked up a couple of plastic entrance feeders from Brushy Mountain.  I mad some sugar water and filled the feeders about halfway and placed them in the hive entrance board (made for these feeders).  They consumed it all today so I went to refill tonight and there are so many bees at the feeder entrance board that is is hard to get the feeder back in without hurting some bees.  Is they a method to do this that is safer for the bees?  Thanks for your help!

Do it at night while they are all inside.

Smoke 'em.


"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
