About this item
Haven’t used it yet but will let you know when I do.
These are the only feeders that I do not lose bees with. And when filled with sugar water, they are covered with bees from morning till night.
Used in my garden during hot weather spate. Instances of dehydrated bees dropped.
I've had one of these on top of each of my hives since last Summer.
I thought they were a very handy source of water to put close to the hives especially when its a bit colder. I notice they are well used all year round.
I got some more recently as visitors keep asking about them and I like to give them to people that take an interest in our insect friends.
Also used them to feed syrup to a little cast of bees that I had in a nuc box, which worked very well.
Very practical & affordable unit. Great for an emergecy feed of nuc or swarm.
