This is my second year with bees so I remember well your feelings and
After your bees are initially settled in I wouldn't worry about
taking a look more than once a week to start with. The disturbance to
the bees of being opened up is more than outweighed in the long term
by your quickly learning how to handle them confidently. Keep
inspections to a minimum time but don't worry at all about opening
the lid to fit and refill a top feeder.
Have lots of fun!
Beekeeping is a wonderful obsession!
