you can give it once a day, it doesnt matter whether it's in the morning or night feeding, but it lasts for all day you just have to make sure to give it everyday so that it builds up in their system.

Yep! We feed once a day, in the evening, its not important when you do it just as long as its everyday.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

We had a sitter this past weekend for my guys and I didn't have her mix the vinegar with their feed for 4 feedings. By Monday morning the flies were there in full force. I started them back mixing 3 tablespoons with their pellet feed twice a day and by Wednesday the flies were again minimal. It doesn't get rid of all of them but it seems to decrease them by 75+%. :P

At the old barn I was at, we fed it just once a day in their evening feed. I don't know that you would want to give it more than once a day. You would likely give them some tummy aches and perhaps interfere with their natural way of cleaning parasites and other bugs away. Vinegar is only their (for a good flavor) as well as assist with the rest of the digestive tract:)
