a week ago I took the lid off mine to peek in through the feed hole in the top, but its sealed up.. lol

yesterday was a tad mild and I noticed a few in and out.....

should I re-open the sealed hole and start to feed again..?

The  feed hole should be covered unless feeding. At this time of year if you need to feed use fondant.

Fondant is in blocks and needs to be cut up.
