@Wil my neighbor made mine (after he adopted one of my lost swarms and I helped him get them going)

If I was to open feed powdered sub I would half fill 3 or so quart jars with feed.
Then lay these on their sides on a solid bottom, cover with a box and lid to "keep your powder dry".
Then Sprinkle a some powder on the entrance to help them find it.

That's a great idea.

One more thing,when I start to feed the pollen sub, what is a good distance from the colony to set the feeder. Should it be pretty close or is a distance of maybe 300 feet ok.

Fred Dunn just did a video that covers this, and he one ups the jar trick I stole from Duck River.
But I think I also read something by Miller along the same lines.

I believe he makes reference to feeder location as well.

I'll check it out. I have Fred Dunns videos bookmarked so that I can view from time to time.
