Description


Half Gallon (2.5 Litre) Contact/Bucket Feeder ‘This must be one of the most effective, quickest and cheapest ways to give your bees a good winter feed. I use this feeder with all my bees’ Measuring 16cm diameter and 15cm deep, these feeders fit nicely into an empty brrod box or suer to give the girls a good, quick feed with little or no fatalities. They can be used to give a quick late autumn feed, or at any other time for that matter. This design has no mesh feeder hole to get clogged up with ‘indestructable propolis’. Instead, the feeder incorporates ample perforations which can be comparatively easily cleared (with something like the end of a ballpoint pen) at the end of the season ready for storage and re-use. NOTE: A variety of feeds can be used in for your bees. Personally, I use a water/sugar ratio of one pint-to-one-Kilo for a winter feed, and two pint-to-one-kilo for spring and summer boosts. A few words of advice – After you have filled your feeder, upturn it several feet from your hive as a couple of tablespoons of syrup will escape before the ‘vacuum effect’ takes effect, then carefully lower directly over your crown board hole. This ensures that you cause no syrup dribbles which can attract wasps
