Top feeders are great for feeding raw or dry white sugar. Feeding in this way, don't use a "chimney cap" and let the bees range across the feeder. If using dry white sugar you may want to add a small damp sponge to the top feeder to give the bees some moisture to work the sugar.
When feeding in this way, use a chimney cap to restrict the bees and prevent them from getting out in the bulk of the liquid. This will minimise drowning. If you don't have a chimney cap, you can fill the feeder with pebbles, or twigs, or some people use lots of polystyrene which will float and give the bees a place to sit above the syrup.
