In the late winter/early spring you may want to feed a heavy syrup (2 kilos of white sugar to 1 litre of water, heated to fully dissolve) in your top feeder.  The top feeder is ideal for this since you don't need to open up the hive to get at the feeder.  Just lift off the hive mat and fill the feeder.. This shouldn't stimulate the queen to lay and with it being in a top feeder she shouldn't sense too much the sugar coming in.  When feeding in this way, use corner caps and a chimney cap to restrict the bees and prevent them from getting out in the bulk of the liquid.  This will minimise drowning.

Top feeder sold separately.  The one you want to match with the "chimney cap" is the extra heavy duty, medium size blue top feeder.  Check it out in this section of our website.
