The popular and easy way to feed your bees, with the ability to top up without disturbing the hive.
This popular feeder allows you to check feed levels, without the need to open the hive. The one gallon feeder has a perforated nipple and lock mechanism designed to fit through a 1" hole in the outer cover (most out covers will require this to be drilled), providing feed to your bees inside the hive. Just add your sugar syrup and your bees are all set.

How to Feed Sugar Syrup
Spring Feeding: Create a 1:1 syrup using 1 lb. water (2 cups) to 1lb. sugar.
Fall Feeding: Make a 2:1 syrup using 2 lb. sugar per 1 lb. of water.
always check the syrup flow prior to placing on the hive. if it is not on correctly all feed will be lost. it is easy to cross thread if not careful. after filling the drip should stop after 2- 4 oz. maybe I received a bad one???seems to be working now after my first fail
Really like the product. Will buy more for all my hives👍
