An effective and popular feeder, with a high capacity.
To install, remove the inner cover and place directly on top of your uppermost box. The feeder includes two inserts that form “ladders”, so the bees will not drown.
Injection-molded plastic, with a wooden rim
The floor of the feeder has two circular areas that can be punched out, creating holes. This allows bees access to solid food, if used. Two plugs are included for these holes, which allows the feeder to used for either liquid or solid food.
Holds approximately 6.75 liters of syrup (or ~1.75 gallons).
Replacement inserts are available here.
For 10 frame Langstroth hives.
Directions for proper use and description of use would go a long way!!
check and fill without bothering the bees no drowned bees. When I get into my hives I pour the feed into a pail so you can check the bottom for the queen and clear the bees. Set it down away from the hive it instantly attracts ants.
I am new to beekeeping and this is a perfect, easy feeder to use. I love that I can look in to check if it needs refilling without bothering the bees. It is very reasonably priced as well.
Easy to fill without having to crack open the hive and disturbing the bees. Keeps drowning loss to a minimum.
I like it better since it has the wooden frame around it. Now I don't have to waste another hive body just for the feeder
