I purchased top feeders for both of my hives, should I still use an inner cover or does the top feeder take the place of it?

I know these questions may sound elementary but I am trying to make sure I have all my bases covered prior to the arrival of my bee's.

Don't worry about "elementary" questions. I, for one, did not know this, either, and I'm glad you asked!

I make my top feeders and don't use a inner cover. Just make sure there is a 3/8 in. bee space between the hive and top feeder for bee space. ( i've never seen a store bought top feeder) I also use migratory lids with my top feeders. Jack
