I looked at a few methods. Trying to make it easy and quick, I have taken a 3"shim out of an old half rotten deep body, mixed 4# sugar with 1quart honey that came from this hive and poured/scooped it right on top of the inner cover around the edge of the shim. Top on.
I'm thinking they must have been hungry because as soon as I began to put in the feed some bees began to come up to it and eat. It was 30degrees at noon so I never did check if there is any honey left in the hive. So now my question is this, How soon should I check again?
