What is the best way to re-fill an entrance feeder without disturbing the little darlings too much? They guzzled the litre of autumn feed in about 5 hours.

I will be able to fit a larger rapid Miller feeder but not before next weekend and the entrance feeder is all I have at present but would like to get some feed into them now.

unless the girls are really starving i would not use it for anything except water

too easy to induce robbing and once the robbers are in you can lose the colonybee-smillie

Im my experience they emtpy those things quite quickly, so it the weather isnt too good, the bees (including robbers) aint going to be flying anyway.
