Hello. I'm a new beekeeper in Utah and I'm a little concerned about feeding my bees. I started with a plastic entrance feeder and boy did my new package of bees love that. It was hard to keep it full. But it started attracting outside bees. Of course, the battling at the entrance was incessant and I had piles of dead bees on the ground. I reduced the entrance and ordered a Mann Lake top feeder. In the mean time, I cut plywood to size with a hole in top and a 10 can with holes punched as a top feeder. With the can full it seemed to drip too fast, but when it got half full, it wouldn't drip at all...hmmm. Anyway, never at any time did I see very many bees when I tilted up the can to see underneath. Well, the Mann Lake top feeder arrived and I placed it atop the brood box, but the bees don't seem to be interested in it. I feel like the bees aren't feeding the way they should. Is it possible that nectar flow is reducing their interest in the sugar syrup or have I just confused them too much? Maybe I ought to go back to the entrance feeder and see if they starting feeding again. Any thoughts?
